After a week-long break, the trial of two men accused of killing Hamilton, Ont.'s Tim Bosma resumes Monday.

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.

The trial last sat on Thursday, March 10, when it heard from an uncle of Millard, Robert Burns. Burns, a veterinarian who has a practice in Vaughan, Ont., denied any intention of getting into the pet cremation business with his nephew when asked by the Crown prosecutor in a Hamilton court .

Burns said he was "absolutely blown away" when he heard about a suggestion that he might have been planning a pet cremation business venture with his nephew.

The uncle said he had taken care of Millard for a time, but that they were not close.

Bosma was last seen on May 6, 2013, after taking two men on a test drive of a pickup truck he was trying to sell. The 32-year-old was missing for more than a week before human remains were found in an animal incinerator on an Ayr, Ont., farm owned by Millard.

The prosecution will continue its case Monday. The Superior Court trial is being held at the John Sopinka Courthouse in Hamilton.
