Judge to deliver verdict in Dellen Millard murder trial in September
TORONTO – A Toronto judge says she will deliver a decision in late September at the trial of a man accused of killing his father, whose death was initially deemed a suicide.
Dellen Millard, 32, of Toronto, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of 71-year-old Wayne Millard.
The judge-alone trial heard that Wayne Millard was found dead in his bed with a bullet in his brain on Nov. 29, 2012.
The Crown alleges the younger Millard killed his father because millions in potential inheritance money was being squandered on a new aviation business for the family company, Millardair.
The defence says Wayne Millard’s death was a suicide.
Justice Maureen Forestell says she will rule on the case on Sept. 24.
The murder trial is the third for Dellen Millard, who has been convicted of first-degree murder for the deaths of Toronto woman Laura Babcock and Hamilton man Tim Bosma.
