The jury is due back at the Tim Bosma murder trial after taking four days off from testimony.
There’s a chance one of, or both of the co-accused will stand before the court this week.
Dellen Millard, 30, and Mark Smich, 28, are on trial for the first-degree murder of Tim Bosma, the Ancaster dad who disappeared May 6, 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.
While all of its witnesses have been called, the Crown has not officially rested its case.
The last couple weeks have focused on Christina Noudga, the girlfriend of Millard.
The cross examination by Tom Dungee, lawyer for Smich, was best described as a cat batting around a cornered mouse.
Noudga claims there was nothing suspicious enough for her to go police; not the boyfriend (Dellen Millard) missing for days, holding on to a DVR for Millard, dropping off a trailer and helping Millard move an animal incinerator late at night on May 9, 2013.
Nothing about the “tiny mission” on May 9 seemed odd for Noudga, either?
“That’s a regular thing”, she shrugged.
“Moving an incinerator in the pitch black is a regular thing?” retorted Dungee.
Noudga chirped back, “we often did things late.”
Dungee told the court that Noudga is wilfully blind to reality; blind to the trailer, wiping of prints, moving things, a missing man, a tool box.
Noudga tells the court that she thought the big black trailer was carrying a mother’s day gift for Millard mom, Madeline Burns.
“So why would you wipe your prints off the trailer, then?” Dungee asked.
The court already learned that Noudga wiped off her prints and then hired a lawyer two days later, but never thought to go to the police.
“You only seem to remember the sex act you performed on Millard that night,” Dungee said.
“It was memorable,” responded Noudga to a stunned court.
She then explained that it wasn’t sex.
“Fellatio?” Dungee asked. “Okay, let’s go with that then.”
When he rhetorically asked if it was to Noudga’s advantage not to know anything, she responded, “It looks that way. Yeah.”
Noudga says she couldn’t recall when she first learned of Bosma’s disappearance. She says the series of “odd” events didn’t tip her off, either.
“You’re going to stick to your story because it helps your trial,” Dungee charged.
Noudga responded, “I’m going to stick with it because it’s what happened.”
At no time during her testimony did Noudga actually acknowledge what happened May 6, 2013.
