The William Sandeson first-degree murder trial resumed Wednesday with testimony from a blood stain pattern analyst, who told the jury that the victim’s DNA was found on a handgun seized from Sandeson’s apartment.
Sgt. Adrian Butler was the first Crown witness of the day.
He described seeing dozens of very small stains on the Smith & Wesson handgun that was seized from Sandeson’s Henry Street apartment in Halifax back in August 2015.
Butler reviewed photos of the gun and prepared a report. He said several stains tested positive for blood, and matched the DNA profile of Taylor Samson.
Samson, 22, was missing at the time and his body has never been found.
