Preview Clip

A chemist testified today it's questionable whether a chemical that a Halifax man is accused of threatening police with was really a useful weapon. James Orr testified about an email in which Christopher Phillips describes making a box containing osmium tetroxide to throw at police. He says it's not clear the box would pose a danger. Prosecutor Karen Quigley says that's up to a judge. (Under cross-examination the 84-year-old chemist said that if the osmium tetroxide spilled onto a person or went into their mouth it could be harmful. Lawyers will make their closing arguments tomorrow.)
