Terri-Lynne McClintic Victoria (Tori) murder trial will resume Wednesday where Terri-Lynne McClintic would pursue with her testimony. McClintic is the ex-girlfriend of the accused Michael Thomas Rafferty. During the break, the lawyers thrashed out several legal matters that cannot be made public as yet.

McClintic pleaded guilty to murdering the eight year old Tori in 2009. Ever since, she is serving a life sentence. On the other hand, her ex-boyfriend Rafferty pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder, sexual assault and kidnapping of Tori Stafford.

The little girl was reported missing in April 2009. Around three months later, police discovered her body near Mount Forest, Ont. McClintic confessed of luring the girl to a vehicle that was driven by Rafferty. She also told the court that she was on drugs at that time.

Last week, McClintic also confessed she delivered the critical hammer blows causing Tori’s death. She was asked by the jury if she wants to make any changes or additions to her testimony – she denied.

“Who committed the murder? Who had the hammer and who did the kicking?” Crown Attorney Kevin Gowdey asked her.

“Myself,” she replied. “It was myself that in fact killed Tori Stafford.”

Ironically, McClintic also informed the court about her agreement with Rafferty that in case both were arrested, she would solely take all the blame for all that happened.

“I said I would take the fall for everything. I would say that it was all me,” she said Wednesday.
