The Crown is starting to cross-examine an Oak Bay man accused of second degree murder in the deaths of his two young daughters.

Andrew Berry is spending his third day on the stand at his trial in Vancouver.

The prosecution claims Berry killed his daughters Chloe, 6, and Aubrey, 4, before trying to commit suicide.

The bodies of the girls were found in Berry’s Oak Bay apartment on Christmas Day in 2016.

Berry has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Earlier in the day, Berry’s defence lawyer once again asked him if he had killed his daughters.

“No I did not kill my daughters I loved them very much I didn’t kill them,” Berry testified.

Instead, Berry says he was attacked and stabbed in the throat by an unidentified assailant and, when he came to, he found his two girls were dead.
