Jury convicts Saskatchewan couple of conspiring to murder their spouses
A Saskatchewan man and woman accused of planning to murdering their spouses have been found guilty.
A jury in Prince Albert took close to 30 hours before convicting Curtis Vey – the father of Vancouver Canucks forward Linden Vey – and Angela Nicholson of conspiracy to commit murder.
The guilty verdict was read on June 5 at the Court of Queen’s Bench in Prince Albert.
Vey and Nicholson each faced two charges of conspiracy to commit murder connected to their alleged plans to kill their spouses. Both pleaded not guilty on May 24.
Brigitte Vey testified on May 25. The courtroom heard she suspected her husband was cheating on her and she used an iPod to make a recording that detailed an affair and the alleged murder plot.
In a previous interview with Global News, Nicholson’s husband Jim Taylor said police shared details of the plan. Taylor would die of a drug overdose, while Brigitte Vey would die in a house fire, Taylor said.
RCMP learned of the alleged plan on July 3, 2013. Three days later, the pair were arrested.
Sentencing is expected to take place in September.
