Saskatoon court hears about shotgun, shells allegedly used in murder
Antonio Good, 51, testified that he got a
phone call from George Allgood while he was working in Missinipe, Sask. back in
"He said: 'if the cops call you about you selling me a shotgun, say you didn't," said Good after being called to the stand at Saskatoon's Court of Queen's Bench.
Good alleges he sold Allgood a stolen shotgun he had "bought off some kid" back in the spring of 2006.
That's just a few weeks before Allgood is accused of cutting down Susan Reinhardt and David Ristow with a shotgun as they slept in their apartment on 4th Avenue North. Reinhardt died from her wounds, while Ristow survived, but was left with serious injuries.
Good told the court that after Allgood told him to deny selling the shotgun, he asked him: "Did you kill that girl?" A question Good said Allgood wouldn't answer over the phone.
Court also heard testimony given at a pre-trial hearing by Roland Scott, who died before the case came to trial.
In that testimony, Scott alleged that in the winter of 2005 he was cleaning out a pickup truck he bought in the parking lot of the Meadowgreen Apartments on Avenue X South.
Scott said he found several shotgun shells throughout the truck and was preparing to throw them away when Allgood came by and asked if he could have a few.
Scott testified that he told Allgood to go ahead and that he saw Allgood pick up and examine some of the shells, but, Scott couldn't confirm if Allgood actually took any with him.
Several years later, in January 2010, Scott said he was staying with his sister when Allgood paid him a visit.
He said Allgood showed up with two other men to deliver a message. Scott quoted Allgood as having said:
"Those things I got from you, those bullets from the truck. That never happened."
The trial is set to resume on Monday.
