The defence decided not to call any evidence at Matthew Tucker’s murder trial yesterday. 36 year old Tucker is charged with killing his mother, Dorothy, two years ago in Oak Bay outside St. Stephen.
The judge sent the jury home for the rest of the day and told them to bring an overnight bag back to court today. The Crown and defence lawyers will offer their summations to the jury this morning. The judge will then give his instructions and the jury will be sequestered until it reaches a verdict.
