Here are some of Bonnie Belec’s tweets (@BELECBONNIE) from Friday:

• Crown (prosecutor Lloyd Strickland) going over night of Ann Marie Shirran’s death. After he (Folker) found her on the floor he cradled her. Blood on her body and on floor.

• Folker says he threw sneakers away but not the clothes he was wearing. Despite cradling her and lifting her in tub never got blood on him.

•  Folker said he wrapped Shirran in blankets to conceal her after Crown suggests Folker didn’t want to get blood in car.

• Defence objects (to) line of questioning about length of time dead and presence of blood on his clothes and sneakers.

• Defence says line of questioning speculative.

• Folker cleaned up blood in kitchen and admits he looked over clothes but didn’t see any blood.

• Crown asks Folker to show again how he killed Shirran.

‰ Crown asks if Shirran said anything during altercation that led to her death. Folker said she didn’t.

• Crown suggests Shirran was going to cut their son out of his life on the night of her death. Folker denies it.

• Folker said Shirran never said anything to him about custody.

• “If she didn’t leave you were going to make her leave.” False, he says.

• Crown says Folker attacked Shirran from behind and struck her head, hit her so hard cracked her skull. False, he says.

• Killing her is exactly what you intended to do, says Crown. False, Folker replies.

• Crown says Folker methodical afterwards to cover up lies. Says Plan A is as much a lie as Plan B, which was self-defence.

• Defence objects to suggestion of self-defence and jury asked to leave the room.

• Back to events. Did you feel in danger night of altercation? No.

• Crown asks, did you feel in serious harm? No, not serious harm, Folker says.
