Kwasi Benjamin’s lawyers probe evidence handling
Crown lawyers brought six witnesses to Kwasi Benjamin’s second-degree Montreal murder trial yesterday in an attempt to demonstrate that there’s no chance anyone could have tampered with their forensic evidence.
Benjamin, 32, is accused of killing Nellie Angutiguluk, a mother of three from Puvirnituq, whose body was found in May 2015 inside the apartment she shared with him in Montreal’s Côte-des-Neiges district.
Under questioning from Crown lawyer Dennis Galiatsatos, Jonathan Boulanger, who works in mortuary transportation, described in detail how the body of Angutiguluk was transported to the coroner on the morning of May 20, 2015.
