Jason Klaus was on the stand at his first degree murder trial in Red Deer yesterday.
He and his friend Joshua Frank have both been charged….
He says they came up with a scheme four years ago-to commit insurance fraud by having Frank steal a truck..
But he says the plan went off course–when Frank tried to steal a deer head from Klaus’ parents’ home in Castor.
He says the dog started barking—so he shot the animal–then gunned down his sister and parents before burning down the house…
Frank is due on the stand later today.
