NewsAlert: Judge finds Dellen Millard guilty in death of father


TORONTO — A Toronto man accused of killing his father in a case originally deemed a suicide has been found guilty of first-degree murder.

Dellen Millard, 33, had pleaded not guilty in the death of 71-year-old Wayne Millard.

Justice Maureen Forestell says Dellen Millard carried out a planned and deliberate murder of his father.

The judge-alone trial heard that Wayne Millard was found dead in his bed with a bullet to the head on Nov. 29, 2012.

The Crown alleged Dellen Millard killed his father because millions in potential inheritance money was being squandered on a new aviation business for the family company, Millardair. The defence argued Wayne Millard’s death was a suicide.

The murder trial was the third for Dellen Millard, who has been convicted of first-degree murder in the deaths of Toronto woman Laura Babcock and Hamilton man Tim Bosma.
