Murder of Tim Bosma (Canada)

Murder of Tim Bosma (Canada) 

From Wikipedia,

Tim Bosma was killed on May 6, 2013, shortly after leaving his house with Millard and Smich, who were there to test drive a truck he was selling.

The murder of Tim Bosma involved Dellen Millard, the heir to Millardair, a Canadian former airline and aviation company, who was convicted in 2016 of murdering Tim Bosma specifically for his Dodge 3500 truck then incinerated the body.[citation needed]

Bosma's body was incinerated by the killers[which?] to destroy evidence but they[who?] were not successful and both[who?] were convicted of first degree murder in the death of Tim Bosma.[citation needed]

Smich and Millard still face charges of first-degree murder in connection with the case of 23-year-old Toronto resident Laura Babcock, who disappeared in 2012.
That case is scheduled to go to trial in 2017.
Separately, Millard is charged with first-degree murder in relation to the death of his father, Wayne Millard. That matter remains before the courts.

Tim Bosma was killed on May 6, 2013, shortly after leaving his house with Millard and Smich, who were there to test drive a truck he was selling.
The Crown’s theory, which jurors seem to have believed, was that the two had planned to kill somebody and take their truck as a souvenir for the previous year.
Smich argued against that version of events, taking the stand in his own defence to claim that he was following Millard and Bosma in a separate vehicle when the shooting occurred.
