The accused killer of a Hamilton man who disappeared after taking two strangers on a test drive in a truck he was trying to sell will not testify in his own defence.
A lawyer for Dellen Millard told court the defence won’t call any evidence.
Millard and his co-accused, Mark Smich, have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of Tim Bosma.
A lawyer for Smich says they will call evidence in the case, which means Smich could testify as early as Wednesday.
The Crown has closed its case in the murder trial after more than three months of presenting evidence.
The Crown alleges Bosma was shot at point-blank range in his truck and his body later burned in an animal incinerator that police found on Millard’s farm near Waterloo, Ont.
Bosma vanished on May 6, 2013, and his body was found more than a week later burned beyond recognition.
