Closing arguments are expected to be heard Tuesday, when a Toronto senior returns to court, as his murder trial nears completion.
Peter Brooks has pleaded not guilty to first-degree and attempted murder charges.
Prosecutors say back in March 2013, the 76-year attacked two women at Wexford Residence, a seniors home in Scarborough, with his cane.
Jocelyn Dickson, 72, died of her injuries. The other woman, 91 year old Lourdes Missier, suffered several cuts and bruises but survived the attack.
Brooks has testified he didn’t actually intent to hurt anyone, even though a spirit in a dream told told him to attack his fellow residents.
The Crown has suggested Brooks launched the attack as revenge; he had had several interactions with the women in the years previous.
