Phillip Boudreau : Cape Breton man dragged out to sea, ‘murder for lobster’ trial hears

Philip Boudreau’s death was murder for lobster, not a lapse of judgment, a Nova Scotia court was told Thursday.

Prosecutor Steve Drake delivered his opening arguments today at the trial of Joseph James Landry, who has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder.

Drake told a jury that Phillip Boudreau died as the result of a sustained attack by a three-man crew including Landry of a lobster boat called the Twin Maggies.

Drake says the Twin Maggies rammed Boudreau’s boat three times at the mouth of Petit de Grat harbour on June 1, 2013.

He says Landry fired four shots from a rifle, one of which hit Boudreau’s leg.

Drake says Boudreau’s boat overturned after it was rammed the third time and he was then hooked with a gaffe and dragged out to sea.
