One of the men charged in the death of Tim Bosma says the violent rap lyrics he wrote had nothing to do with the Ancaster father’s murder.
Mark Smich continues his testimony under cross-examination from co-accused Dellen Millard’s lawyer Nadir Sachak.
Court has seen several rap lyrics and one rap video that police found on Smich’s iPad, in which he writes about guns, killing and running from police.
Smich says his lyrics do not reflect real life, adding that he writes about money, but he’s broke, and he writes about a Cadillac even though he doesn’t have a driver’s license.
Sachak pointed out several times that the lyrics were written and changed right around the time Bosma was killed.
Sachak then said “you talk about killing people, you’re charged with first degree murder, right?”
The 28-year-old Smich answered, “that’s correct.”
In an extraordinary moment, Sachak mixed up a timeline, talking about a gun.
Smich smirked, then boldly challenged him, saying “it must be one of your brain cramps again. You’re probably under a lot of stress.”
The courtroom gasped and the judge shut down the exchange.
Smich has testified that Millard shot and killed Bosma and then burned his body in an animal incinerator.
Both men have pleaded not guilty to first degree murder in Bosma’s death.
