The jury has returned a verdict in the trial for the murder of Harold Plugowsky, which occurred on rue Principale in Fort-Coulonge on September 2, 2020. The accused, Johan Mitchell Blake MacLennan, who was 37 at the time, was declared not criminally responsible for the murder by the jury in this trial, which began in November.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, several jury trials have suffered from delays due to the transmission of COVID, which is what caused MacLennan’s first trial to end prematurely. MacLennan was charged with the first-degree murder of Plugowsky, 61, who was found with severe head trauma at his Fort-Coulonge residence in September 2020. More details to come.
