Former Quebec judge pleads guilty to manslaughter in the death of his wife

WNews 1 Min Read

After nearly 15 years of legal battles, Jacques Delisle, a former judge on the Quebec Court of Appeal, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of his wife.

Appearing in a Quebec City court room on Thursday wearing a mask, Delisle accepted the plea.

His lawyer, Jacques Larochelle, said while they agreed to the plea, parties disagreed on the facts, as the crown maintained that Delisle took an active part in the death of his wife.

In his first trial in 2012, he was convicted of the first-degree murder of his wife, 71-year-old Marie Nicole Rainville, who died in 2009.
