Yesterday I got another ET entry in, #196: Modiste Villebrun, the last person executed in Canada while it was still a colony. Villebrun lived in Quebec and he and his girlfriend, Sophie Boisclair, poisoned his wife and her husband so they could marry each other. They got away with the first murder but they were caught the second time. My guess is the lovers weren’t being terribly discreet about their affair.
Sophie Boisclair’s sentence was commuted to life in prison because she was pregnant. She was released after serving 20 years.
And that’s the last of my Executed Today entries for this month.
