Lane trial resumes
Nancy Lane exits the Elgin St. courthouse in Ottawa during her murder trial. The trial of the former Prescott Councillor resumed Monday after a one-week recess for March Break. Lane is accused of murder in the 2009 death of her late husband, Art, who was a union negotiator. Prosecutors are alleging that Lane had a relationship with a “gigolo and con man” from the Dominican Republic, and that she administered a lethal cocktail of drugs to her ill husband to cash in on a $200,000 life insurance policy. Lane had presented the death of her ill husband as an assisted suicide or mercy killing.
