Daughter testifies against father in murder trial
Wayne Paul Eisnor charged with first degree murder of his estranged wife, Tina Mae Eisnor, in August 2010
A woman took the stand against her father in a murder trial in Bridgewater, N.S. Wednesday morning.
Wayne Paul Eisnor is accused of shooting and killing his estranged wife, Tina Mae Eisnor, in a grocery store parking lot in New Germany in August 2010. Eisnor was also shot, and claims to have no memory of the incident.
Wednesday, their daughter told the 13-member jury about another incident involving a gun and the family.
Ashley Eisnor, 24, said it happened when she was 10 years old. It was a summer day. The family was putting in hay at their farm when she said her father became angry and pulled a hand gun from the second shelf of a kitchen cabinet.
Ashley Eisnor said he held the loaded gun to her mother’s head and threatened to kill her.
At that time, she testified someone knocked on the door, and Eisnor calmed down an apologized.
Ashley Eisnor moved out of the family home in 2009. She said it was because she couldn't get along with her father. The defence suggested it was her mother she couldn't get along with, and reminded her she told police their relationship was shaky.
But Ashley Eisnor said it was a normal mother-daughter relationship, and any arguments were only over small things. At one point, the defence suggested the witness hates her father.
She responded: "I hate him for what he's done."
