Closing arguments in Winnipeg body in a barrel murder trial, case goes to jury

WINNIPEG - The case of a young Winnipeg man who was killed, stuffed into a barrel and tossed into a river is going to a jury.

Kristopher Brincheski and Corey Tymchyshyn (Tim-chish-in) are each charged with first-degree murder in the February 2008 death of Chad Davis.

In closing arguments Tuesday their lawyers each said their clients were telling the truth when they blamed the killing on each other.

The Crown contends the pair together plotted and killed 22-year-old Davis over a large drug debt.

Last week Tymchyshyn testified that Brincheski killed Davis with a hammer.

The jury is to begin deliberations Thursday. (CJOB)
