Ex-girlfriend of accused in Bosma murder has trouble remembering details

HAMILTON — The former girlfriend of a man accused of murder in the death of Tim Bosma says she found out about the trouble he was in on the day of his arrest.

Christina Noudga told a Hamilton court that on May 10, 2013 she was trying to contact Dellen Millard when his friend and co-accused Mark Smich told her on the phone that "s--t went down."

Millard, 30, of Toronto, and Smich, 28, of Oakville, Ont., have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in Bosma's death.

The Crown alleges Bosma was shot at point-blank range in his truck and his body later burned in an animal incinerator known as "The Eliminator."

Bosma vanished on May 6, 2013 after taking two strangers for a test drive in his truck that he was trying to sell.

His body was found more than a week later burned beyond recognition.

Noudga says she was with Millard when he moved the animal incinerator to his sprawling farm near Waterloo, Ont., three days after Bosma vanished.
