Albert GUAY killed his wife, Rita MOREL

Born in 1918,
the son of Joseph Arthur GUAY  and Marie Éva LANDRY, 
Albert married Rita MOREL (Wilfrid+Imelda DIONNE) 
on 1941-08-30 in St-Roch parish, Québec City, QC. 
Albert earned a living as a jeweler in the city and all went well with the marriage, or so it seemed.
Eventually, Albert met Marie-Ange ROBITAILLE, a 17 year old, with whom he fell in love. In order to continue legally with this relationship, Albert decided that he had to get rid of his wife, Rita. If she died, he would be the beneficiary of her $10,000 life insurance. This would cover his debts and he would be free to marry Marie-Ange.
Having contrived of a plan, Albert talked about it to Marguerite RUEST-PITRE, who, in turn, requested the help of Généreux RUEST. The latter had access to sticks of dynamite; therefore, he made a bomb using the sticks and a timer. Albert then planted the bomb in a suitcase that would be placed in the baggage compartment of a plane that his wife, Rita, would be taking to go to Baie Comeau, QC.
On September 9, 1949, Rita MOREL and 17 other passengers boarded the DC-3 plane of Quebec Airways left from Ancienne Lorette, QC heading for Baie Comeau. The plane blew up in mid-air above Sault-au-Cochon, about 70 km north of Québec City, QC.
On Septembre 23, 1949 Albert GUAY was arrested for these murders and sentenced to death in February 1950. He was hanged January 19, 1951 at Bordeaux prison in Montréal, QC. Généreux RUEST, who helped Albert make the bomb, was hanged at the same prison on July 25, 1952 as was the 3rd accomplice, Marguerite RUEST PITRE. She was the last woman to be hhanged in CANADA.
