On Thursday, the lawyers representing the two men accused of killing Bosma spent most of the day arguing with each other in court, as the location of a key piece of evidence — a bullet casing found in Bosma's truck — showed a sharp divide between them.
Retired Ontario Provincial Police identification officer David Banks returned to the witness box to continue his testimony, but it was through cross-examination that the jury saw the defence teams are not presenting a united front.
Dellen Millard, 30, of Toronto and Mark Smich, 28, of Oakville, Ont., are accused of killing Bosma, 32, who lived in the suburban Ancaster area of Hamilton. Both have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder.
Bosma was last seen on May 6, 2013, and was missing for more than a week before remains were found on an Ayr, Ont., farm owned by Millard. Earlier in the trial, the Crown told jurors it is believed the remains belonged to Bosma, though tests have not confirmed that.
