As he was being taken to a waiting ambulance on Aug. 3, 2011, Joshua Tyler Bredo asked about the welfare of friend Daniel Jordan Levesque.

Both men had been found injured in a Cormorant Street condominium, and Bredo was the first one taken to hospital.

Levesque was also rushed to hospital, where he died.

Bredo is on trial for first-degree murder in the death of Levesque, along with sexual assault and unlawful confinement. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

In B.C. Supreme Court on Wednesday, Victoria police Const. Wayne Cox, who accompanied Bredo and the paramedics inside the ambulance, said he found Bredo to be alert and coherent during the ride, but also noted another question from him.
