A man accused of the murder of Jake Anderson-Brettner will give evidence in his trial today.
Defence counsel Greg Richardson said Jack Harrison Vincent Sadler, who has pleaded not guilty, will give but not adduce evidence.
The Crown alleges Mr Sadler, 29, shot the victim three times before cutting up and disposing of his body in wheelie bins around Launceston.
He was assisted by his partner Gemma Elizabeth Clark who is serving a five and a half year jail sentence for failing to report a killing and being an accessory after the fact.
Mr Richardson has previously told the court there was no dispute that Mr Sadler was involved in the disposal of the body but the issue was who killed Mr Anderson-Brettner.
The trial, before Justice Robert Pearce, continues today in Launceston.
