The captain of a Cape Breton lobster boat has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for using his vessel to ram the speedboat of a neighbour accused of cutting traps. Dwayne Matthew Samson pleaded guilty in May to manslaughter in the 2013 death of Philip Boudreau. Crown attorney Shane Russell says allegations that Boudreau had cut traps were never proven in court. (Samson was one of four people charged in a case that attracted national attention in November when a Crown prosecutor said the case amounted to "murder for lobster." Boudreau's body has yet to be found.)
