Two of four people charged after the presumed slaying of a Petit-de-Grat man were released on bail with conditions on Thursday morning in Nova Scotia Supreme Court.

The body of 43-year-old Phillip Boudreau has not been found, but three men — James Joseph Landry, Craig Landry and Dwayne Matthew Samson — have been charged with second-degree murder.

They are crew members on a fishing boat called the Twin Maggies, which is alleged to have been involved in a confrontation with Boudreau's boat.


Phillip Boudreau, a Petit-de-Grat man, has been presumed dead.

Craig Landry appeared in court on Thursday and was released on $50,000 bail. As part of his release, he must live with his mother in Petit-de-Grat. He cannot leave Nova Scotia.

Landry's curfew has been set from 12 p.m. to 6 a.m. and he must report to the local RCMP office daily. The 40 year old must also hand over his passport and not apply for a new one.

Landry has also been ordered not to have any contact with his co-accused or Boudreau's family and he is barred from owning firearms and explosives.

Boat captain's wife also charged

Carla Ann Samson, the registered owner of the Twin Maggies, also appeared in court on Thursday and was released on $25,000 bail. She is charged with accessory after the fact in Boudreau's killing.

The 37 year old must stay at her family home in D'Escousse, have no contact with the accused or Boudreau's family and she is barred from owning firearms or explosives.

Samson also has a 12 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew.

She is the wife of Capt. Dwayne Samson and the daughter of crewman James Landry. 

James Landry has not applied for bail.
