Defence lawyer cross-examines key Crown witness in Montreal murder tria

A key Crown witness testified during cross-examination yesterday that he had been told by the late Nellie Angutiguluk’s boyfriend, Kwasi Benjamin, that she had sometimes expressed suicidal ideas, but that she did not express such thoughts on the night of her death.

Benjamin was with her all that night, so he would have told me if she was suicidal that night, the witness, known only as XY due to a publication ban, told the court.

Benjamin, 32, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Angutiguluk, an Inuk mother of three from Puvirnituq. She was found dead in May 2015 at the Côte-des-Neiges apartment she shared with Benjamin.

XY, as he has been named by the court, was a former cell mate of Benjamin, who was arrested and charged in July 2018.
