We are learning the family of Tim Bosma has launched a civil suit against his killers.
The 14-million dollar lawsuit was filed in May 2015 more than a year before Dellen Millard and Mark Smich were found guilty of first degree murder in Bosma’s death.
The 32-year-old Bosma was killed in 2013 after taking Millard and Smich for a test drive of the pickup truck he was selling online.
The statement of claim says Bosma’s family “continues to suffer from severe emotional and mental distress as a result of the brutal and callous act.”
The civil lawyer for the Bosma family told the Spectator “It’s another venue where they can get justice for Tim.”
Toronto based criminal lawyer Joseph Neuberger told CHML’s Bill Kelly Show, civil lawsuits are “about compensating people for injuries or wrongs.”
Millard filed a statement of defence last November, calling for the lawsuit to be thrown out.
Millard’s mother, Madeleine Burns, and his girlfriend, Christina Noudga, are also listed as defendants in the lawsuit.
The allegations in the civil suit have not been tested in court.
