After getting a week off at the Tim Bosma murder trial, jurors have returned to the John Sopinka Courthouse.
After listening to four months of witness testimony and seeing dozens of exhibits, jurors will decide the fate of co-accused Dellen Millard and Mark Smich.
Both men have pleaded not guilty to killing the Ancaster man in 2013.
Following legal arguments Tuesday and Wednesday, Justice Andrew Goodman is delivering his instructions for the jury.
Goodman says the jury should disregard comments Crown attorney Tony Leitch made in his closing argument when he said Bosma should not be forgotten because they must decide the verdict based on evidence and not emotion.
The judge also says the jury shouldn’t consider Smich’s lawyer’s comments about Millard not testifying in his own defence because that is Millard’s right, and should not be held against him.
The jury is expected to begin deliberating late Monday when the judge concludes his instructions in the case, which began more than four months ago.
The Crown claims Millard and Smich shot and killed Bosma almost immediately after taking his pickup truck for a test drive and then incinerated his body in The Eliminator.
Smich earlier testified that it was Millard who shot and killed Bosma and then dumped his body into the incinerator alone.
