A fifth person charged in connection to the hit and run death of Cheticamp veteran Jackie Deveau is due back in court today to enter pleas.
23 year-old Chelsey Anne Marie Pinkston from Sydney Mines and Balls Creek faces a count of being an accessory after the fact to the offence of failing to stop at the scene of an accident.
She’s accused of helping Thomas Smith by trying to delete evidence from his cellphone and co-ordinating the destruction of his car.
