A man from Richmond Co. who pleaded guilty to a charge in the death of Phillip Boudreau has been granted day parole.
Dwayne Matthew Samson, 48, of D’Escousse entered a guilty plea to a lesser charge of manslaughter as his second-degree murder trial was set to get underway in May of 2015.
National parole board members have granted Samson day parole for six months; he told them he plans to live at a halfway house and return to work on his fishing boat.
He’s to not have any contact with Boudreau’s family members.
Boudreau was last seen in June of 2013; his overturned boat was found shortly after he disappeared in Petit-de-Grat Harbour.
His body has never been found.
