Expert in DNA analysis to offer more testimony at Dennis Oland murder trial

SAINT JOHN, N.B. — An expert in DNA analysis is back on the witness stand today at the Dennis Oland murder trial in Saint John, N.B.

Joy Kearsey was a scientist at the RCMP lab in Halifax when Oland's father, New Brunswick businessman Richard Oland, was killed in his Saint John office on July 6, 2011.

She completed 11 reports on the case, amassing 1,400 pages of notes.

Crown and defence lawyers have pared that information down to 52 pages of results for the jury.

Dennis Oland has pleaded not guilty to second degree murder.

The trial is into its 11th week.
