Sentencing Today For Accused In Boudreau Case
A man charged in a high profile Richmond County murder case is due back in court today to be sentenced.
In July, 42 year-old Craig Claude Landry pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact in the death of Philip Boudreau.
Police say Boudreau died after he was involved in a violent altercation with three men on the Twin Maggies fishing boat when they caught him tampering with their lobster traps.
Boudreau is missing and presumed dead after his overturned boat was found in Petit de Grat Harbour in June of 2013.
Landry was originally charged with second-degree murder in the case but that charge was reduced to being an accessory.
In November, Landry testified as a crown witness at the trial of another Richmond County man charged in the case.
67 year-old James Landry was found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced to 14 years in prison.
That sentence is being appealed.
