NEWMARKET, Ont. — A man who survived a gunshot to the face during a home invasion in which his wife was killed testified Tuesday at the trial of his daughter, who allegedly orchestrated the attack.

Jennifer Pan, 27, is accused of hiring armed thugs to murder her parents in their Markham, Ont., home on Nov. 8, 2010.

Pan and four men — her lover Daniel Wong, Eric Carty, Lenford Crawford and David Mylvaganam — have all pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and attempted murder.

Hann Pan testified that he was awakened suddenly with a gun barrel pushed to his face.

The accused woman's mother, Bich Pan, 53, died after being shot three times. Her father was shot in the face and back, but survived.

"I woke up and there was a coloured-skin person pointing a gun in my face," Hann Pan, 60, testified, speaking through a Vietnamese interpreter. "I was very scared."
