Pathologist Katherine White puts a sticker on a skeleton in the High Court of Palmerston North, indicating that Palmiro MacDonald suffered injuries.
A pathologist says that Palmiro MacDonald would not have survived bullet wounds inflicted on his body.
But there were no tests that had been shot in the head or cut.
The Supreme Court of Palmerston North became a biology class on Wednesday, since Dr. Katherine White used a skeleton model to explain the injuries of MacDonald.
MacDonald MacDonald images were also displayed on a large open track screen, but they can not be published for legal reasons.
* An informant in prison in a murder trial in disdain to refuse to submit evidence
* There are no palm stains of Palmiro MacDonald killed in a burning pad pad
* The crown says that the firearm pill found in Palmiro MacDonald is not related to an alleged murder
* Crown says that Palmiro MacDonald was kidnapped, tortured and shot in the "gangland" execution.
MacDonald disappeared from Levin in March 2016. His remains, little more than a skeleton and small pieces of flesh, were found in the Mangahao Dam, near Shannon, in October 2016.
Joseph William Johnson and Chea Paratene Charles Brattle-Hemara Haeana, who carries the Hemara name, are tried to assassinate MacDonald.
The Crown says he fired and hit him before pulling the body. They have not been found guilty.
White, a pathologist who has tested homicide for more than 10 years, applied adhesives to the model's skeleton while describing MacDonald's injuries.
MacDonald had fractures in the jaw and left cheek, which could have been caused by a single blow.
He also had fractures on both heels, with metal fragments found at breaks.
Both femurs had bullet wounds at the same level, which means they could have happened in a single shot, he said.
A bullet was found on the left knee, which had fractures, in a tissue of the inner femur right and in a hole in the sacrum.
White said there were probably five incidents of different disparities, that MacDonald would not have been able to survive if he did not receive medical attention.
There were also holes in the shorts, which could prove to be shot through his buttocks, he said.
The main arteries and veins cross the sacrum, near the back of the knee and the femurs, but could not be said if they were struck during the blows due to MacDonald's remains.
However, there were no bullet wounds on the head or neck.
The trial previously heard by a witness who said that Johnson was glorified to shoot MacDonald at the head.
In addition, there was no evidence that MacDonald dismembered before being dumped, or that he was buried, he said.
Although the lesions could be produced after his death, the context had to be taken into account.
"It has shotgun wounds and [was] ready [of] a bank, "he said.
"Something has happened to this man".
The trial continues.
