Last accused in Boudreau death to enter plea
Man charged with being an accessory to murder
A plea is now expected July 24 for the last accused charged in connection with the 2013 death of a Petit de Grat man.
Craig Claude Landry, 40, of Petit de Grat, is now scheduled to enter plea to a charge of being an accessory to murder.
Landry was originally charged with second-degree murder in relation to the June 1, 2013 death of 43-year-old Phillip Joseph Boudreau.
Landry was a key Crown witness in the trial for the first accused charged with second-degree murder. A jury subsequently convicted the accused of manslaughter and he was later sentenced to 14 years in prison.
A second accused pleaded guilty to manslaughter and will be sentenced in August.
An accessory charge against a third person was dropped.
According to the evidence presented at the trial of the first accused, Boudreau was shot and his body weighed down with an anchor and his remains dumped at sea after he was observed by Landry and other raiding lobster traps.
