FSJ Murder Trial continues in PG

The B.C. Supreme Court trial for Leonard Freedom Ballantyne, charged with second-degree murder, continued into its second regular day yesterday, in Prince George .
The charge arose from a Fort St. John shooting death, on Sept. 12th, of 2006.
The Prince George Citizen reports defence counsel closely questioned a tenant of a Fort St. John apartment complex, who said he went out into the hallway from his suite that day.
He saw a man in the hallway and, at first thought there had been a fight and, the man had been punched in the stomach.
Later he testified he smelled gunpowder and, the man told him he was shot.
The tenant also said that, in an earlier incident at the apartment complex, he saw a man with a chainsaw, outside a vehicle in the parking lot.
The trial continues today.
