The man had a beard and unkempt clothing; he was wearing a blue sweater, faded, torn jeans and black shoes. His truck was an older-model grey Chevrolet.

Trial hears murder confessions during voire dire

A Saskatoon murder trial has watched the video-taped confession that led to first-degree murder charges against three men accused in the shooting death of Isho Hana more than a decade ago.
 
The trial has yet to hear any direct evidence implicating Kenneth Tingle, Long Nam Luu and Jonathan Dombowsky, as it continues with a voir dire or a trial within a trial. In this case, it’s to determine whether or not the murder confession Neil Yakimchuk made to police during a Mr. Big sting in 2011 can be used as evidence in Tingle, Dombowsky and Luu’s trial.
