Day two of the Gerald Stanley murder trial began Tuesday in North Battleford.
Stanley is facing a charge of second degree murder in the 2016 death of 22 year old Indigenous man Colten Boushie.
The day began with the crown prosecutors saying Stanley and his son were building a gate when a vehicle entered the yard, when someone climbed out and tried to start a quad.
Prosecution alleged the son went over with a hammer and whacked the windshield.
The vehicle then tried to leave before hitting another car. They also alleged when Stanley’s son went inside, he heard three shots and then saw Boushie slumped down in the driver seat of the car.
Testimonies were also made by Corporal Terry Heroux, one of the first few people on scene after the shooting. He showed pictures of Boushie’s body and a bent rifle, which caused Boushie’s family to leave the courtroom.
Day three of the trial continues Wednesday in North Battleford.
