SAINT JOHN, N.B. "On the day he was brutally beaten to death, the multi-billionaire businessman Richard Hollande went to work in his office in St. John and looked pleased when his only son, Dennis, appeared to discuss Holland's family line and family tree.
More than seven years later, Denis Hollande is in court a second time for his father's deadly death on that day in 2011, and prosecutors have said the court money is the motive.
Maureen Adamson, Richard Olander's executive assistant at the time of his death, was at the booth for the second day of the re-investigation of the murder of Olander on Thursday, telling the daily routine of the Cabinet in the province of St. John, which included tracking the money Dennis owes to his father you are,
She was the first to find her body on the morning of July 7, 2011. Holland, 69, was hit 45 times, mostly on the head, with weapons never found.
Adamson said Dennis had paid only $ 1,666.67 a month of borrowing over half a million dollars that Richard Holland had extended when Dennis was in a tight financial place due to divorce a few years ago.
Under a cross-examination by a lawyer, Michael Lassie, a new member of Oland's defense team, Adamson describes what he knows about the relationship between father and son, saying he does not see any signs of the tense and problematic relationship pointed out by prosecutors.
Adamson said Dennis Hollande was not often visiting his father's office in St. John, but when he appeared at the end of the day on July 6, 2011 – the day of the murder – Richard Holland, he looked happy to see him.
"It was animated" hello, "" Hey Dennis, "she said for Richard Holland's greeting to the man who was later charged with murdering him.
He looked happy to see him.
Adamson said that Olasz was conquered by the research. Dennis is heading in the tree and spreading to her roots in the UK. Olands are one of the most famous business families in Maritimes, where they have been involved in 19th-century beer.
Richard Hollande was former executive director of Moses Brewery in St. John, although he left the company in the early 1980s. Adamson said he was worth about 37 million dollars.
On the day of the murder, she left just after Dennis Holland's arrival at about 5:30. From then on, the father and son are alone in the office.
Dennis said he left shortly after 18:30. and headed back to his home in Roses, on the outskirts of the city. He told the police that his father was well when he left and firmly claimed he was innocent of the crime.
Adamson said he thought father and son were doing well.
"Besides the usual graves that most people have with family members … I thought they were doing well," Adamson said. "I did not see the stress I heard later (during the first trial)."
Dennis Oland, 50, was sentenced in 2015 to murdering his father after a long trial. This conviction was rejected on appeal in 2016 and a new case was ordered.
The second hearing of the jury was announced manners earlier this week. The justice Terrence Morrison of New Brunswick in Queen Bench's court quotes "inaccuracies" in the selection process of the jury. It turned out that a police officer in St. John, coordinating the Crown Prosecutor's files, had access to an internal police database to jury in violation of a directive of the Supreme Canadian Court.
The crown did not participate in the wrong search and immediately informed the defense and the judge. The process is now only heard by Morrison.
