An RCMP blood-spatter expert is testifying at the second-degree murder trial in Winnipeg of Mark Stobbe.

Retired inspector Bruce Maclean analyzed blood found in Stobbe's garage.

Maclean says some of the blood dripped onto the floor.

Stobbe, who was a high-profile government adviser, is accused of killing his wife, Beverly Rowbotham, in October 2000.

Her body was found in her car in a parking lot in Selkirk, Man.

The Crown alleges Stobbe hit his wife with a hatchet in their backyard, then drove her body to the parking lot 15 kilometres away.
