The trial of Marc-André Grenon, accused of the murder of Guylaine Potvin, continues for a third consecutive day, Wednesday, at the Chicoutimi courthouse. The elements of the crime scene are presented to the 14 jurors.

Some photos and videos will be shown as evidence. A publication ban, however, prevents those where the victim is seen from being broadcast. Judge François Huot warned the jury that their presentation in court could disturb some.

André Lecomte, a retired crime scene technician from the Sûreté du Québec, is the fourth person called to the stand. He began his testimony in the morning. He and his colleague arrived in Jonquière early in the afternoon on April 28, 2000.

Earlier, paramedic André Bilodeau finished his testimony by being cross-examined by defense lawyer Karine Poliquin on Wednesday. He said that he and his colleague noticed that Guylaine Potvin was in cardio-respiratory arrest. They attempted resuscitation maneuvers without success.

His colleague discovered a belt at the height of the victim's neck. André Bilodeau also explained that the police quickly determined, once they arrived on site, that it was a crime scene. At the request of the police, the paramedics left the house.

In addition to the paramedic André Bilodeau and the technician André Lecomte, the friend by Guylaine Potvin, Audrey Saint-Pierre testified Tuesday at the Chicoutimi courthouse. Called first to the stand, she was the one who discovered the victim’s body.
