Excerpt:

Phone records entered as an exhibit at Dellen Millard's first-degree murder trial for the death of his father put Millard at his father's home on the day he died, the Crown says.

The records, which were entered as an agreed statement of facts in court Friday morning, place a cellphone that court has heard belonged to Millard at his father's home the morning of Nov. 29, 2012.

That's the day the Crown alleges Millard fatally shot his father.

Lacking good investigative technique by police detectives and a tough lawyer may not come together well.

More at link.

Dellen Millard uploaded a photo of himself with bloody eye makeup to the online gaming platform Steam just weeks before his father was shot in the eye, court heard Monday as Millard's first-degree murder trial continues.

The Crown attempted to have the photo introduced as evidence at the judge-alone trial in Ontario Superior Court in Toronto, arguing the timeframes were too implausible to be just a coincidence.

But Justice Maureen Forestell ruled the image to be too prejudicial, and said she would not consider it in her decision. She said it was "clearly discreditable conduct evidence."

Millard, 32, once studied makeup effects and artistry. Court heard the photo was taken in 2005, and then uploaded to Millard's Steam account somewhere between Nov. 10 and Nov. 14, 2012. Wayne Millard died of a gunshot wound through the eye later that month.

Wayne Millard only wanted to create more of a legacy for his son Dellen, something Dellen was not interested in, apparently.

Long article, unable to snip for apparent reasons. Videos and other links within link.

Wayne Millard had a $10-million plan to transform the family’s aviation business, Millardair, into a maintenance shop for passenger jets, the judge-alone trial heard. He told many people he was creating the business for his son.


Wayne Millard was spending the family money creating a legacy for Dellen Millard that he didn’t want,” Cameron said.

Shortly after Wayne Millard died, his son — a co-owner of Millardair — fired all employees and returned a crucial license from the federal government to operate the company, the Crown said.

“(Dellen Millard) now had money, power, freedom and control,” Cameron said.

Dellen Millard’s defence lawyer argued, however, that Wayne Millard was depressed, an alcoholic and “drowning” underneath the stress of the business, echoing what his client told police shortly after his father died.

“There is an overwhelming body of evidence that points to suicide,” Ravin Pillay said.

“It was a suicide then, it is a suicide now.”

The Crown said Dellen Millard’s plan to murder his father crystallized on Nov. 1, 2012, when the family aviation business received a maintenance, repair and overhaul certificate from Transport Canada.

“The plan was hatched as soon as that licence came through for a business he didn’t want,” Cameron said. “Money was being funnelled out, his inheritance being spent.”

That’s the same day the younger Millard bought a second cellphone, the Crown said.

Court has heard that phone was used to call a cab from the home of Millard’s friend, Mark Smich, in Oakville, Ont., early on Nov. 29, 2012. Records show that phone was at the home Millard shared with his father at about 1 a.m. that day, and then back at Smich’s house at 6 a.m.

Pillay countered that there was no proof that Millard was travelling with that phone and that it wouldn’t make sense to use a phone that was still registered in his name, if this was, in fact, murder.

Millard left behind his main phone and a credit card so Smich and his girlfriend could buy pizza, the Crown alleged. Cameron said it was all a ruse to create a false alibi.

The coroner put Wayne Millard’s death between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., court heard.

The Crown said Wayne Millard was not suicidal, but hopeful for the future, and had made plans for the day after he had been found dead, as well as plans to teach his girlfriend how to fly.

“Everything was coming up Wayne,” Cameron said.

She also said Wayne Millard couldn’t have physically shot himself in the face because of his position in his bed, where he was found lying on his side with a revolver nearby.

Pillay said it’s impossible to reconstruct the moment of shooting with any certainty.

The judge-alone trial has heard Dellen Millard bought the revolver found next to his father’s body from a gun dealer, and that his DNA was found on the weapon.

Pillay said the DNA on the gun could have simply come from his client buying it.


Ultimately, Pillay concluded, suicide is a complex issue and, in this case, misunderstood by the Crown.

“With years of untreated depression compounded by decades of alcohol abuse, Wayne Millard was driven to a final impulsive act,” he said.

Wayne Millard’s entire life was devoted to his son, Pillay said. And when Dellen Millard told his father that he was a failure and the reason behind the company’s financial troubles, Wayne Millard broke down.

“That must have been very painful,” Pillay said.

Millard is currently serving two life sentences for the deaths of Toronto woman Laura Babcock and Hamilton man Tim Bosma.

The judge said she may have a verdict by July 19, but the decision may come in September due to her caseload.

How can otherwise good people, end up with a psychopath as their offspring?
Sociopaths?  Even more still.... Genetic make up gone amuck?
Environmental upbringing, or both/

Seems to me we as a society are producing more of them than not.

It can't be the water we are drinking.

Dellen Millard was found GUILTY by a judge, today, in the murder of his father, Wayne.
Glad to see this verdict.

Dellen is a serial killer....I believe he is truly a mad man who was not going to stop.
It’s like his looks morphed into that of a scary, dangerous man...which he turned out to be.

Thanks for the update jobo. I agree with you--Dellen Millard would have gone on to kill anyone who got in the way of what he wanted...a classic sign of a psychopath. Here is the link.

Judge delivers decision in Millard murder case

TORONTO -- A Toronto man who stood to inherit a multimillion-dollar aviation company was found guilty of first-degree murder in his father's death Monday, a ruling that marked his third such conviction.
Applause broke out as a judge declared Dellen Millard had carried out a planned and deliberate killing of his father, whose death was initially ruled a suicide.
Wayne Millard, a wealthy 71-year-old businessman, was found dead in his bed with a bullet lodged in his brain on Nov. 29, 2012. His son had pleaded not guilty in the death but the judge hearing the case found otherwis

"I am satisfied that Dellen Millard killed his father by shooting him in the left eye as he slept," said Justice Maureen Forestell. "I can find no theory consistent with innocence."
Millard, 33, cried softly as the decision was read out to a packed courtroom.
Among those who had gathered for the ruling in the judge-alone trial were the parents of Millard's two other victims, Toronto woman Laura Babcock and Hamilton man Tim Bosma. Babcock's father said all three families would be forever linked as a result of Millard's crimes.
"It's been proven that not only has the Bosmas and ourselves have lost a loved one, the Millard family must live with the fact this heinous individual murdered his own father," Clayton Babcock said outside court. "There'll be not a day in our lives when the loss of Laura, Tim or Wayne won't be felt."
Crown attorney Ken Lockhart said he was grateful for the outcome of the case.
"I hope that the process has brought (the families) some kind of closure," he said.
Wayne Millard's death was Dellen Millard's second murder.
He had killed Babcock, a 24-year-old woman he had been seeing, months earlier in July 2012. Six months after his father's death, Millard killed Bosma after taking the 32-year-old man's truck for a test drive.
Millard's friend, Mark Smich, was also convicted of first-degree murder for the Babcock and Bosma slayings. The pair are serving life in prison with no chance for parole for 50 years for those murders.
Police re-opened the case of Wayne Millard's death after arresting the younger Millard for Bosma's killing.
The latest trial unfolded in June without a jury. The Attorney General granted a defence request for a judge-alone proceeding after agreeing that Millard's notoriety, given the Bosma and Babcock murders, would make it impossible to find fair jurors.
Prosecutors alleged Millard killed his father because millions in potential inheritance money was being squandered on a new aviation business.
Forestell rejected significant parts of the Crown's case, including the motive for money, saying it played no role in her decision. Instead, she found the case turned on a lie Millard told investigators after his father's death.
The trial heard Millard told police he found his father dead in bed around 6 p.m. on Nov. 29, 2012. He said he last saw his father alive around noon the day before and had then stayed the night at Smich's house. But phone records indicated that one of Millard's phones moved from Smich's house around 1 a.m. on Nov. 29, 2012, to his father's home where it stayed until shortly after 6 a.m.

"I do not believe the statement of Dellen Millard that he stayed at Mark's," Forestell said. "I find it was fabricated to conceal he was involved in the death of his father."
Forestell also said Millard created a false alibi after leaving his truck, credit card and his other phone at Smich's house.
The trial also heard that Dellen Millard, who did not testify in his own defence, bought a handgun found next to his father's body from a weapons dealer -- evidence Forestell accepted. Dellen Millard's DNA was on the gun.
The defence argued Wayne Millard's death was a suicide.
Dellen Millard told police his father was depressed, an alcoholic and under a tremendous amount of stress because of his efforts to turn around the family's aviation business, court heard.
"He carried some great sadness with him throughout life that I never knew -- he never wanted to share that with me," Dellen Millard told police in an interview played in court.
Wayne Millard had inherited the family aviation business, Millardair, from his father, Carl Millard, in 2006. It had been launched as a cargo carrier in 1963 and later flew passengers before going bankrupt in 1990, court heard.
The company then rented out aircraft hangars at Toronto's Pearson airport until 2010, when Wayne Millard moved into the maintenance, repair and overhaul business and built a massive, multi-million dollar hangar at the Region of Waterloo International Airport by 2012.
The trial heard that Dellen Millard blamed his father for the company's financial issues.
"The last time I spoke to him, I told him the company's financial troubles were his doing and that he was a failure," Millard wrote in a text to his girlfriend that was presented in court. "Usually he tells me not to worry. But this time he said maybe I was right."
Days after his father's death, Dellen Millard fired everyone at Millardair and wound the business down, court heard.
A sentencing hearing for Millard is scheduled for Nov. 16. The Crown said it will seek an additional 25 years of parole ineligibility for Millard in his father's death.

I now Believe his mother should be charged with Accessory after the fact, in both his fathers murder, and in Tims murder. I believe Madeline knew and helped him cover it up

That maybe too hard to prove, if they don't have some kind of recording of her or him testifying against her, it maybe very hard to convict her. They got the monster for sure, because he's the one who is a serial killer and heaven knows how many more that he killed. Just glad they convicted him of his father's murder, because that had to be very difficult too, to investigate and convict him. It is why so many go free, they know they did the crime, but they have to have the everything to take it to court, it's not an easy task. I congratulate the police and prosecutors for getting this SOB and being successful in this conviction. ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

RIP to all the victims and there are so many.:(
