Nova Scotia man’s double murder trial hears from gunman in January 2010 slayings

MONTREAL — The jury trial of a Nova Scotia man charged with two counts of first-degree murder in a Montreal double slaying is hearing from the person who pulled the trigger.

Leslie Greenwood is accused of being the getaway driver in slayings in which another Nova Scotia man, Robert Simpson, has admitted to being the killer.

Simpson is serving a life sentence for gunning down Kirk (Cowboy) Murray and Antonio Onesi in a McDonald’s parking lot in west-end Montreal in January 2010.

Now a co-operating witness, Simpson is testifying on behalf of the Crown at Greenwood’s trial in Montreal.

Simpson says he, his brother and Greenwood were sent to Montreal to kill Murray at the behest of Jeffrey Albert Lynds, also of Nova Scotia, as part of a complicated settling of accounts.

Simpson says Greenwood’s task was to drive him and his brother to Montreal to complete the hit and take them back to Nova Scotia.
