The crown’s star witness will be back on the stand Monday when the Tim Bosma murder trial resumes in Hamilton.
Christina Noudga, the former girlfriend of co-accused Dellen Millard, first took the stand last Wednesday. Her testimony could last two weeks.
Noudga was evasive while testifying last week, claiming not to remember key details.
On Thursday, the jury learned Millard wanted to use Noudga as his “secret agent” to influence testimony. The jury was shown letters written to Noudga by Millard that included attempts to tamper with another witnesses’ testimony.
“You said you wanted to be a secret agent. Be mine?” one letter from Millard to Noudga read. “Here’s your chance to be a covert operative.”
Noudga and Millard would correspondent via mail during his time in jail.
“It was Mark [Smich] who screwed up a truck robbery, not me,” wrote Millard. “Just because I cleaned up Mark’s mess, doesn’t mean I should have to pay for it.”
In a letter dated Oct 7, 2013, “Andrew [Michalski] didn’t know how to keep his mouth shut,” Millard wrote from his jail cell, in reference to his roommate speaking to police. “I need to undo the damage he’s done to me. If he knew his words were going to get me a life sentence, he’d change them. Show him how he can, and he will change them.”
It’s expected that the crown will wrap up with Noudga by Tuesday, at which time she’ll face cross examination.
Millard, 30, and Mark Smich, 28, are on trial for the first-degree murder of Tim Bosma.
The crown believes Bosma was shot point-blank in the truck and then incinerated.
The trial resumes Monday morning at 10 a.m.
