SAINT JOHN, N.B. — The third day of the Dennis Oland murder trial is underway in New Brunswick, with a defence attorney cross-examining Richard Oland’s secretary.

Maureen Adamson testified yesterday about discovering Richard Oland’s body on July 7, 2011.

She told the court she remembered panicking when she walked into the office in Saint John, N.B., that morning to see two legs protruding from behind a desk.

Defence lawyer Gary Miller has begun questioning Adamson about Oland’s work and personal habits, as well as his relationship with his son.

Forty-six-year-old Dennis Oland has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the death of his 69-year-old father.

Adamson says Richard Oland was chatting about family history with his son the last time she saw him alive the day before she found his body.

Crown attorney P.J. Veniot told the jury in his opening submission that Richard Oland was killed in a violent outburst that resulted in 40 blows to his head and neck.
