Tim Bosma killing: Christina Noudga bail decision will wait 1 more week
Third day of bail hearing, no decision made
A Toronto-area woman accused of being an accessory after the fact in the murder of Tim Bosma will wait one more week in jail before finding out if she gets bail.
Noudga, 22, will be back in the prisoner's box next Friday, Aug. 8, where it's expected she will hear the decision if she will be released while awaiting trial. She's accused in accessory after the fact in the 2013 murder of Tim Bosma, and has been identified by police as the girlfriend of Dellen Millard, 28, who is facing first-degree murder charges in Bosma's death.
Noudga's parents, Maxam and Emily Noudga have been in the courtroom the past three days of their daughter's bail hearining. So, too, have a number of her supporters.
Bosma's widow, Sharlene, meanwhile, has not been in court at the request of the crown.

On Friday, Noudga wore a sleeveless white blouse, skinny jeans and brown heeled boots strung together by the shackles on her ankles — the same outfit she has worn throughout the bail hearing.
Besides a wave and mouthing "bye" to her supporters, Noudga didn't scan the courtroom, but rather sat stoically throughout the court's proceedings, the details of which fall under a publication ban and cannot be reported.
Noudga has been identified as the girlfriend of Millard, one of two men facing first-degree murder charges in the death of Bosma, an Ancaster, Ont., man last seen by his wife when he left to take a pair of men on a test drive of a truck he was trying to sell online.
Bosma's remains were found charred beyond recognition on a Waterloo farm shortly after he went missing. Noudga is the third person charged in Bosma's murder, after Millard and Mark Smich, 26, of Oakville.
The hearing is set to resume at 10:00 a.m. Friday, Aug 8.
Bosma went missing on May 6, 2013. His charred remains were found on May 15.
Bosma's widow, Sharlene, has normally made every court appearance related to the Bosma case, up until Noudga's bail hearing. His father Hank, was in court Wednesday.
Neither was in the Hamilton court Thursday or Friday.
Millard has also been charged in the death of a missing Toronto woman, Laura Babcock, 23, and his father, Wayne — both of whom were killed in 2012.
Smich has also been charged in the murder of Babcock, who went missing in the summer of 2012.
In a previous interview, Crown Attorney Anthony Leitch said the charge against Noudga relates to an allegation that she tried to help Millard "escape" on May 9, 2013. He would not elaborate as to what was meant by escape, or from whom. Police had at one time speculated there was a third person involved in Bosma’s abduction and slaying, but Leitch said Noudga likely had no part in it.
Millard and Mark Smich, 26, of Oakville, have been held in jail since being charged with first-degree murder in Bosma's death.
