DISCLAIMER: The following story contains explicit language
Christina Noudga is back on the stand and facing questions from the the Crown at the Tim Bosma murder trial.
Following their “tiny mission”, Noudga says it was May 10, 2013 when she waited for her boyfriend, Dellen Millard. They were “getting together”.
Only, the co-accused Millard has already been arrested. Noudga is unaware.
As the hours passed, Noudga would text Mark Smich — the other man co-accused in the murder of Bosma.
Noudga testified that Smich called her back on his girlfriend’s phone and said, “shit went down and something went wrong. You shouldn’t worry about it”.
Noudga would go to the home of Madeline Burns, Dellen Millard’s mother. There she would learn that Millard was charged with forcible confinement.
Noudga says they panicked, realizing the trailer in the driveway may be connected.
Worried about media attention, Noudga says her Burns went to a hotel, drank wine and cried.
It was over copious amounts of wine that they realized that they had touched the evidence.
“Holy shit we touched the trailer,” Noudga testified. “We’re going to get drawn into this mess.”
The women would go back to the house, wipe down the trailer, and return to the hotel.
Noudga and Millard would correspondent via mail during his time in jail.
That’s when the blame game took shape.
“It was Mark [Smich] who screwed up a truck robbery, not me,” wrote Millard. “Just because I cleaned up Mark’s mess, doesn’t mean I should have to pay for it.”
In a letter dated Oct 7, 2013, “Andrew [Michalski] didn’t know how to keep his mouth shut,” Millard wrote from his jail cell, in reference to his roommate speaking to police. “I need to undo the damage he’s done to me. If he knew his words were going to get me a life sentence, he’d change them. Show him how he can, and he will change them.”
Millard continues, “The cops tricked [Andrew Michalski] into thinking he was charged. The pansy is being scared into giving up a true friend. He never should have moved things after I was arrested.”
The Crown reveals that Millard is trying to have Noudga get Michalski to change his story.
“He’s gotta say he never heard anything about the truck thefts or plans to steal anything,” Millard writes. “Especially a truck.”
On the stand, Noudga says she realized it was really stupid. She says she wanted Millard to love her, the same way she loved him.
Millard, 30, and Mark Smich, 28, are on trial for the first-degree murder of Tim Bosma, the Ancaster dad who disappeared May 6, 2013 after taking two men for a test drive in his pickup truck.
The Crown believes Bosma was shot point-blank in the truck and then incinerated.
