Hyatt trial hears recorded testimony from Mike Baxter

The Ashlee Hyatt murder trial in Kelowna has heard heartbreaking testimony from Mike Baxter, Hyatt's former boyfriend, recorded at the preliminary hearing earlier last year.

Hyatt, who was 16, was fatally stabbed at a high school party in Peachland in 2010.

An 18-year-old girl is charged with second degree murder, but she can't be identified because she was a minor at the time of Hyatt's death.

Baxter was the Crown's primary witness, but he was killed in a tragic car accident just a week before the trial began. The jury heard a recording of what he saw, on Thursday.

Daybreak reporter Brady Strachan has been following this trial closely, and joins host Chris Walker.
