A father shot in the head during a home invasion allegedly staged by his daughter is expected to testify at her trial today in Newmarket, Ont.
Jennifer Pan and four men are charged with the murder of her mother, and attempted murder of her father.
Huei Hann Pan was shot in the face in November 2010 during an apparent home invasion but survived. His wife was killed by shots to the head.
Jennifer Pan called 911 from her Markham home, telling the dispatcher she had managed to free herself after three gunmen tied her hands. Today her father is expected to tell a different story
According to the Crown, Pan saw his daughter speaking quietly to one of the intruders, and she was not tied up. The father is expected to describe being terrified when he awoke to a man pointing a gun at his head. He is also expected to tell the court that he and his wife were ordered to go to the basement.
The Crown told the jury Hann Pan will testify someone threw a blanket over his head and shot him near the right eye. When he regained consciousness, he saw his wife dead on the floor.
The prosecution alleges that what happened was in fact a deliberate hit orchestrated by Jennifer Pan because her parents had thwarted a relationship she had. The Crown maintains her home-invasion story fell apart when it became clear her father had survived.
The 27-year-old Pan, her ex-boyfriend Daniel Wong, and three other men are each charged with first-degree murder.
