One of Tim Bosma's accused killers admitted on the stand Wednesday to abusing his girlfriend as the lawyer for his co-accused continued to delve into his character.
Mark Smich, on the third day of cross-examination from Dellen Millard's lawyer in a Hamilton court, said he physically abused his girlfriend once, but could not recall the details of the incident.
Smich and Millard have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of Bosma, who vanished on May 6, 2013, after taking two strangers for a test drive in his truck.
Millard's lawyer, Nadir Sachak, also reviewed Smich's extensive criminal record, which includes seven convictions.
Smich told court a graffiti charge in 2012 was an artistic expression and part of his involvement in hip-hop culture.
Smich said he sprayed his nickname “Say10” - a reference to Satan he says Millard gave him - on a highway overpass in Oakville.

One of the men charged with murder in the death of Tim Bosma says the violent rap lyrics he wrote had nothing to do with the Ancaster father's killing.
Mark Smich continues his testimony today under cross-examination from the lawyer of his co-accused, Dellen Millard.
Court has seen several rap lyrics and one rap video that police found on Smich's iPad, in which he writes about guns, killing and running from police.
Smich says his lyrics do not reflect real life, adding that he writes about money, but he's broke, and he writes about a Cadillac even though he doesn't have a driver's license.
Smich and Millard have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of Bosma, who vanished on May 6, 2013 after taking two strangers for a test drive in his truck.
Smich has testified that Millard shot and killed the Hamilton father, and then burned his body in an animal incinerator.
