A new trial for 53-year-old Curtis Vey and 52-year-old Angela Nicholson has been ordered by the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal.
The two were convicted in 2016 for conspiring to murder their spouses with court hearing secret recordings that were made in which the pair allegedly talked about a plan to kill Vey’s wife in a house fire while killing Nicholson’s husband by drugging him. Those recordings were made by Vey’s wife at the couple’s home in 2013.
In a written decision, Justice Georgina Jackson says the original judge erred in two ways thus paving the way for a new trial to be held. It is not known when that will happen.
The pair had been handed three-year sentences, but they were released pending the appeal which was heard late last year.
