SAINT JOHN, N.B. — The first witness has resumed testimony at the murder trial of a member of one of New Brunswick’s most prominent families.

Dennis Oland has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder related to the death of his 69-year-old father, well-known businessman Richard Oland.

Maureen Adamson, Richard Oland’s secretary, discovered his body in his Saint John office on July 7, 2011.

She testified on Wednesday afternoon to provide an overview of Oland’s business.

Prosecutors say Dennis Oland was in dire financial straits at the time of his father’s death.

Crown attorney P.J. Venoit told court yesterday that the elder Oland was killed in a violent outburst that resulted in 40 blows to his head and neck.

The trial continues today and is expected to last 65 days.
