Hearing a recording of the 911 call made the day 20-year-old Daniel Jordan Levesque died was hard on his family and friends attending the third day of the trial of his accused murderer on Friday.

There were tears and hugs in B.C. Supreme Court during the playing of the 14-minute recording from Aug. 3, 2011, during which a caller identifying himself as Joshua Bredo said Levesque had stabbed him and that he had responded by hitting Levesque in the head. Both men were taken to Victoria General Hospital, where Levesque died.
