TORONTO — Two men accused of killing a young Toronto woman and burning her body have been found guilty of first-degree murder.
Dellen Millard and Mark Smich had pleaded not guilty to the charges related to the death of 23-year-old Laura Babcock, whose body has not been found.
The Crown alleges Babcock was killed in July 2012 because she had become the odd woman out in a love triangle with Millard and his girlfriend.
Prosecutors have said Millard and Smich planned the murder for months and covered up their crime by burning Babcock's body in an animal incinerator that was later found on Millard's farm.
Millard, 32, of Toronto, and Smich, 30, of Oakville, Ont., have said the Crown failed to prove that Babcock is dead.
The two men were convicted last year of killing Tim Bosma, a 32-year-old Ancaster, Ont., man who disappeared in May 2013 while trying to sell his pickup truck, and burning his body in Millard's incinerator.
