An Ontario judge is set to begin giving legal instructions today to the jury in the trial of two men accused in the killing of Tim Bosma.
Justice Andrew Goodman is expected to read his charge to the jury over two days in the first-degree murder trial of Dellen Millard and Mark Smich.
Bosma vanished after taking two strangers for a test drive three years ago.
Millard, 30, of Toronto, and Smich, 28, of Oakville, Ont., have both pleaded not guilty.
Smich told the jury Millard shot, killed and burned the Hamilton man’s body.
Millard’s lawyer said Smich accidentally shot Bosma after pulling a gun to try to steal the Hamilton father’s truck.
The Crown alleges the pair meticulously planned to steal a pickup truck, shoot and kill its owner and incinerate the body.
Bosma’s remains were found near Waterloo, Ont., burned beyond recognition.
