Petit-de-Grat murder suspect released on $60K bail
Dwayne Matthew Samson charged with 2nd-degree murder in Petit-de-Grat man's death
One of the men charged with second degree murder in the case of a Cape Breton fisherman missing and presumed dead has been granted bail with strict conditions.
Dwayne Matthew Samson, 43, appeared in Port Hawkesbury court on Tuesday. He was released on $60,000 bail — $10,000 cash and a $50,000 surety.
The body of 43-year-old Phillip Boudreau has not been found, but three men — Samson, James Joseph Landry and Craig Landry— have been charged with second-degree murder.
They are crew members on the fishing boat, the Twin Maggies.
Samson was released under strict conditions that include not having any contact with his co-accused and members of the Boudreau family. He is under house arrest and is required to surrender his passport. Samson is also not allowed to have a cellphone.
Samson’s first bail application two weeks ago was denied.
Co-accused Craig Landry and Samson's wife Carla Ann were granted bail last month.
Carla Ann Samson, the registered owner of the Twin Maggies, was released on $25,000 bail. She is charged with being accessory after the fact in Boudreau's killing.
James Joseph Landry will have his bail hearing in October.
