Man Charged in Connection to Boudreau Murder Due in Court
A 41-year-old Richmond County man charged in the murder case of 43-year-old Philip Boudreau is due back in court, today.
Craig Claude Landry was originally charged with second degree murder.
However, the charge was amended to being an accessory after the fact, during Landry’s court appearance in April.
Today, he’s due in court for an election and plea hearing.
Boudreau is missing and presumed dead after his overturned boat was found at the mouth of Petit de Grat Harbour, last June.
Police believe Boudreau was shot during an altercation with men on a fishing boat, earlier that morning.
Landry’s co-accused in the case have already be given trial dates.
44-year-old Dwayne Matthew Samson is scheduled to stand trial on a charge of second degree murder on Oct. 20th.
The second degree murder trial for 66-year-old James Joseph Landry is set to start on November 10th.
Dwayne Samson’s wife, Carla Ann Samson, is also charged with being an accessory after the fact in the case.
She’s due to stand trial on April 27th of next year.
