One of the men charged in the death of Tim Bosma says the violent rap lyrics he wrote had nothing to do with the Ancaster father’s murder.
Mark Smich continued his testimony under cross-examination from co-accused Dellen Millard’s lawyer Nadir Sachak, Tuesday afternoon.
During the latest session of the long-running trial, the court was shown several rap lyrics and one rap video that police found on Smich’s iPad, in which he writes about guns, killing and running from police.
WATCH: The court released a video of accused Bosma killer Mark Smich rapping about killing.
While testifying, Smich, 28, said his lyrics do not reflect real life, adding that he writes about money, but he’s broke, and writes about a Cadillac even though he doesn’t have a driver’s license.
Sachak pointed out several times that the lyrics were written and changed right around the time Bosma was killed.
“You talk about killing people, you’re charged with first degree murder, right?”, Sachak asked.
Smich answered, “That’s correct.”
In one awkward moment, Sachak mixed up a timeline while asking about a firearm, prompting a jab from a smirking Smich.
“It must be one of your brain cramps again,” he said. “You’re probably under a lot of stress.”
The courtroom gasped and the judge shut down the exchange.
Smich has testified that Millard shot and killed Bosma and then burned his body in an animal incinerator.
Both men have pleaded not guilty to first degree murder in Bosma’s death.
