Paul Bernardo's former lawyer continues his testimony

Paul Bernardo's original lawyer, Ken Murray, said on day two of his obstruction of justice trial, that he had a strong defence for his client.

Murray said that by October 1993 he and his law partners studied over 4,000 documents from the crown, in preparation for a preliminary hearing. The hearing was never held.

Murray was charged for holding onto videotapes, for 17 months. The tapes showed Bernardo and Homolka raping and torturing their young female victims.

As a result, Homolka agreed to testify against Bernardo in exchange for two manslaughter convictions. She was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Murray said he was willing to hand over the tapes to the crown if they had let him cross examine Homolka in a preliminary hearing.

The former lawyer said the videotapes showed Karla Homolka sexually assaulting four female victims, including Kristen French and Leslie Mahaffy.

Murray said the tapes also show her having sex with a female prostitute in Atlantic City, and at another point, drugging an unconscious victim known as Jane Doe.

He also said Homolka mailed her friends cut puppy tails from the vet clinic she worked at in St. Catharines.

Murray said he thought that showed her lack of revulsion to violence and blood.
