Two lovers who were convicted of plotting to kill their spouses in Saskatchewan have each been sentenced to three years in prison.
A judge found Curtis Vey and Angela Nicholson equally guilty of the crime and said they should receive the same sentence.
But he also said the two were genuinely remorseful and unlikely to reoffend.
The two faced a maximum sentence of life in prison after a jury convicted them in June of conspiracy to commit murder.
The trial in Prince Albert heard that the pair planned to kill Vey’s wife, Brigitte, in a house fire, and Nicholson’s husband, Jim Taylor, by drugging him and making him disappear.
The judge said it was a mystery why good people do bad things.
