A Cape Breton woman charged with accessory after the fact in the death of a Petit-de-Grat fisherman has been committed to stand trial.

Carla Samson, 38, is the registered owner of the fishing boat the Twin Maggies. It's been seized as evidence in the presumed slaying of 43-year-old Phillip Boudreau.

Her husband, Dwayne Samson, has been charged with second-degree murder in Boudreau's death.

The two are due in court again on Dec. 6 to set dates for those trials.

Two other men — James Joseph Landry and Craig Landry — who fished on the boat are also charged with second-degree murder.
