PORT HAWKESBURY — A charge of second-degree murder against a Richmond County man was withdrawn Monday and replaced with being an accessory after the fact.

Members of the RCMP and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans inspect the C & D Fisheries Ltd. boat Twin Maggies at the wharf in Arichat on June 3 in this Cape Breton Post file photo.

Craig Claude Landry, 40, of Petit de Grat, is one of four people charged in connection with the death of 43-year-old Phillip Joseph Boudreau on June 1, 2013. Boudreau's body has never been recovered. His overturned boat was found in Petit de Grat harbour with no sign of the man. It is believed he died after being shot.

Landry, who continues his release on conditions, was scheduled to have a preliminary hearing date set Monday on the second-degree charge but instead the charge was withdrawn and replaced by the accessory offence.

He is now scheduled back in provincial court June 23 to enter a plea on the charge.
