The Shafia trial resumed Tuesday after a delay due to illness. It's been an emotional trial so far.
Mohammed Shafia, his wife Tooba Mohammed Yahya and their son Hamed are charged with four counts of first degree murder. Their three teenage daughters and another relative were drowned in the Rideau Canal in Kingston in 2009.
A relative of the mother's came from Sweden to testify. He claimed Mohammed Shafia asked him to invite the Shafia daughters to Sweden. Shafia allegedly told the relative he thought it would be easier to drown them there.
The relative said he refused and warned the mother her daughter's were at risk. The family reportedly disapproved their daughter's relationship with a boy.
