Landry Trial Continues, Today
About a half-dozen Crown witnesses are expected to testify in Port Hawkesbury court today at the second degree murder trial of James Joseph Landry. 67-year-old Landry is the first of four people to be tried in the death of 43-year-old Phillip Boudreau. Yesterday, the Crown opened its case against Landry by saying Boudreau’s death on Petit-de-Grat harbour last year was murder for lobster. The Crown says Boudreau’s small boat was shot at four times and then rammed by the larger Twin Maggies fishing boat. It also claims that after Boudreau landed in the water, he was hooked with a gaffe and dragged out to sea by the Twin Maggies, where his body was weighed down by an anchor. Boudreau’s body has never been found despite extensive searches by police divers.
