  • Boden was convicted

    Boden was convicted
    Returned to Montreal for trial, he openly confessed to three of the related murders, oddly balking in the case of Norma Villancourt. It was enough, regardless, and his four life sentences appeared to guarantee that Boden would be permanently out of circulation.
