The first day of the Myles Hughes trial has begun in Belleville.
Crown Gerry McGeachy told the 12-person jury, he believes the evidence will show Myles Hughes is guilty of the crimes of Murder, Attempted Murder and Possession of a Loaded Hand Gun.
He says Roy Mays Junior attended a party on Saint Patricks day 20-10, a party he wasn’t invited to… and allegedly punched one of the party goers.
The Crown added Mays was shot twice in the back, and his cousin, Justin Couglin, was shot as well.
Belleville Constable Eric Hadley was the first respondant to the home 153 Victoria Avenue, a home where the accused Myles Hughes allegedly lived.
Hadley told the court when he asked bystanders at the time who had shot Mays, Hughes admitted he did it, adding it was in self defence.
