The Tim Bosma murder trial is on hold as the judge works on his charge to the jury.
Justice Andrew Goodman is set to meet with lawyers Monday to begin working on his instructions on how the jury should weigh the wealth evidence they have heard over the last four months.
The charge will be read to the jury on Friday.
Closing arguments in the case were heard last week, but jury deliberations are not expected to begin for another week.
Accused killers Dellen Millard and Mark Smich have both pleaded not guilty to the first-degree murder of Tim Bosma.
The Ancaster man disappeared May 6, 2013, after going on a test drive with Smich and Millard in a pickup truck he was trying to sell.
Investigators later found charred human remains, believed to be Bosma, in a livestock incinerator on Millard’s farm.
Millard’s lawyer, Ravin Pillay, has said his client is too smart to have left behind so much evidence, suggesting that the murder was not planned.
Meanwhile, Smich’s lawyer, Thomas Dungey, has repeatedly claimed Millard is fully responsible for killing Bosma, saying Smich had no motive to kill.
During closing arguments, the Crown argued that it doesn’t matter who pulled the trigger because both of the accused planned to kill the Hamilton father.
The Tim Bosma murder trial has now entered its fifth month.
