From The Herald: (warning for graphic content on link) Penny Boudreau admitted in Bridgewater provincial court this morning to killing her daughter, then dumping the 12-year-old's body by the LaHave River — but not before dropping by Tim Hortons to throw out the incriminating twine. And she did it because she didn't want to lose her boyfriend. Paul Scovil, the Crown attorney, said the change in plea came about after Ms. Boudreau told an undercover agent during an elaborate police set-up what she had done. She jokes and laughs about her actions in the videotaped encounter. From CBC NS A Nova Scotia woman has admitted to killing her 12-year-old daughter last year in Bridgewater. Penny Boudreau pleaded guilty Friday to second-degree murder in the death of Karissa Boudreau. She reported her daughter missing last January. Two weeks later, the girl's frozen body was discovered on the banks of the LaHave River on the outskirts of town.
