Landry Murder Trial Set To Resume, Today
The second degree murder trial of Joseph James Landry resumes in Port Hawkesbury court, today, after a break in the proceedings since last Tuesday. 67 year-old Landry is the first of four people to go to trial in the death of 43-year Phillip Boudreau. The Crown says Boudreau died after a violent altercation with the crew on the Twin Maggies fishing boat in June of last year. The trial will continue today without the jury present for a hearing on the admissibility of evidence. The Crown is expected to call its key witness, Twin Maggies deck hand Craig Landry to testify, this week. Landry was originally also facing a count of second degree murder in the case but had the charge downgraded to being an accessory after changing his statement to police.
