Neighbour says she saw car in lot

A woman who lives next to the empty lot testified before Bambrick on Wednesday, and told the jury she heard a rustling outside her window in late August which woke her up.

Gail Oakley told the court it was around 1:30 a.m., on a day between Aug. 28 and 30, when she looked out her east-facing window to see a car parked in the empty lot.

"I noticed the headlights of the car were on, the doors were open, but I can't be positive about the interior lights," she said. "It was black, a sedan, I believe a two-door. It reminded me of my Dodge Neon I used to own."

Oakley testified she saw a man standing in front of the car, who appeared to be looking for something.

"He was a slim build, definitely Native descent, hair about down to his neck, sort of a shaggy cut," she said.

Recordings made at parents' homes

Court heard Ellis, who was charged with Sanderson's murder in April 2016, became a person of interest in 2014 after police received an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers.

Winnipeg police Sgt. Doug Bailey testified he interviewed Ellis just after that tip came in and then didn't see him again for almost two years.

"I was tasked to dress up in uniform, go out in a cruiser car and pull over Mr. Ellis and his mom when they were driving around at a certain time," he told the court.

Police had put a recording device in Ellis's car and hoped the traffic stop would cause him to say something incriminating.

Sgt. Wes Rommel, who is a supervisor with the Winnipeg police homicide unit, said that the traffic stop was one of two techniques police used in the the investigation.

"If it means something to [the suspect] it would generate conversation," said Rommel.

In anticipation, audio recording probes were placed in the homes of Ellis's mother and father. The jury heard a recording of a conversation between Ellis and his mother in her living room on April 21, 2016.

Carol Ellis can be heard talking about Sanderson's case being on the news. She also was recorded saying, "I know what you did," and "I am trying to protect you."

The mother and son were yelling at each other and arguing for most of the recording. Each time she brought up the murder, Kyllan Ellis would change the subject.

She also asked her son if he left DNA at the scene. He responded by saying he didn't know what she was talking about.

A sample of Ellis's DNA was taken at the time of his arrest. Court previously heard there was no match with his DNA on the evidence taken from where Sanderson's body was found.

Both of Ellis's parents are scheduled to testify later in the trial.

The trial continues Thursday.
