Co-accused in body in barrel trial admits to death threats
Co-accused Corey Tymchyshyn testifies in first-degree murder trial of Chad Davis
A Winnipeg courtroom heard a second day of testimony from accused killer Corey Tymchyshyn on Wednesday.
Tymchyshyn and Kristopher Brincheski are on trial for the killing of 22-year-old Chad Davis, who was found stuffed in a barrel, wrapped in industrial-style plastic and floating down the Lee River near Lac du Bonnet, Man.

Both are facing charges of first-degree murder in the man’s death.
Tymchyshyn admitted to threatening Hallson’s life, telling him he needed to be more careful in keeping the grow-op a secret.
He also admitted to telling Hallson the last man who messed up like this ended up in a barrel.
At the time, Tymchyshyn was on bail for murder with a $100,000 surety.
The court has already heard Davis was a cocaine dealer who was trying to collect a $10,000 debt from Tymchyshyn.
On Tuesday, Tymchyshyn pointed the finger at his co-accused, Brincheski, saying the man had beat Davis to death with a hammer after being pistol-whipped by Davis.
He then admitted to wrapping up Davis, putting him in a barrel, drilling holes in that barrel and dumping him in a river.
