Closing arguments set to begin in manslaughter trial of Brayden Bushby


November 6, 2020

Brayden Bushby's lawyer called no evidence in his defence of the 21-year-old who has admitted to throwing a trailer hitch from a passing car at a First Nations woman in Thunder Bay, Ont., in January 2017.

Barbara Kentner, a 34-year-old mother and member of the Wabigoon Lake Ojibway Nation died six months later. The blow from the hitch ruptured her small intestine.

A forensic pathologist, Dr. Toby Rose, told the court that Kentner's death was a consequence of being struck in the stomach with the trailer hitch, but Bushby's lawyer, George Joseph, contested that conclusion in his cross-examination on Wednesday.
