The first-degree murder trial of Douglas Hales, the man accused of killing Daleen Bosse, resumed in Saskatoon Thursday. Once again, the focus was placed on a police sting held to get a confession out of him.

Hales is accused of killing Bosse a decade ago. 

Court has heard how undercover police used what's called the "Mr. Big" sting, where the target is led to believe he has the confidence of a criminal "boss".

In the Queen's Bench courtroom Thursday, the court heard how the RCMP considered numerous scenarios to get Hales to talk  involving everything from transporting diamonds to Montreal to hanging out in Winnipeg strip clubs.

The trial, before Justice Gerald Allbright of Saskatoon's Court of Queen's Bench continues.
