Motel murder claim: Victim sexually assaulted his murder-accused

Gibson said his client was initially unaware of the older man’s intentions.
“Lenny thought Sonny was there out of friendship,” he said.
On the morning of the beating that resulted in Gillman-Harris’ death, Gibson said the older man earlier offered money for oral sex with Wallace-Loretz.
Hours later, Gibson said, the trio had just checked into the motel when the alleged sexual assault took place on the other co-accused – leading to the pair responding with the fatal beating.
On Monday, pathologist Paul Morrow said Gillman-Harris suffered several injuries including “at least three impacts” to his skull, causing multiple fractures which led to his death.
The Crown case, which closed on Monday, was that the boys pre-planned the assault on Gillman-Harris – conferring in text messages in his car before arriving at the motel to “roll” Gillman-Harris for money.
