The co-accused in the murder of Tim Bosma has wrapped up his testimony.
Mark Smich told the court Thursday he has never owned a gun and certainly had no idea he would ever find one inside a toolbox Dellen Millard arranged to have delivered to him following Millard’s arrest.
When Smich opened it, he testified that he was surprised to find the Walther PPK allegedly belonging to Millard.
Smich says it was the same gun used to shoot and kill Tim Bosma on May 6, 2013.
In earlier testimony, Smich said he wasn’t there when it happened. He said he was scared and wanted nothing to do with the gun.
Instead of going to police, Smich says he tried to sell the gun. When that failed, he hopped onto his bike in the dark of night and buried it somewhere in the woods.
Where was it buried?
Smich can’t seem to recall. At all.
He told the jury that he knows the gun; seen it in Millard’s car and handled it.
Smich told the jury that Millard was trying to frame him by planting the gun on him.
Saying he was confused and feared for his life, Smich never went to police with any information.
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.
