Man accused of murdering family grilled on witness stand, backtracks on initial story
Accused killer Jason Klaus testified at his triple first-degree murder trial in Red Deer that after his parents and sister were killed, he told a lot of lies to his family, his friends and the police.
Klaus tried to stick to the same story during cross examination by Joshua Frank's lawyer, Tonii Roulston.
He insisted he had only written three or four fraudulent cheques in July and August of 2013 for "seven or eight thousand dollars." Klaus maintained he confessed all that to his family before the September bank statement arrived.
In a calm, methodical fashion, Roulston confronted Klaus with cheque after cheque after cheque.
