The arrest of the 35-year-old lawyer last week created shock waves in the courthouses. Noémie Tellier is accused of having been an accessory to the murder of Francis Turgon after the fact between May 2019 and November 2023 in several cities in Quebec. A crime punishable by life imprisonment.

In practice, he is accused of having assisted the murderers after the murder of Turgeon, a drug trafficker who was allegedly eliminated for not having paid royalties to a member of the Hells Angels. James Patrice Mardy, 33, and Kevin St-Pierre, 34, were charged with first-degree murder last fall.

Kevin St-Pierre, who has numerous criminal records, is the ex-spouse and father of M’s childe Noémi Tellier.

After spending a few days behind bars, Noémie Tellier was released on conditions on Wednesday following an agreement between the parties ratified by judge Lyne Décarie. The criminal lawyer will now be prohibited from identifying herself as a lawyer, from performing any legal act or from being in a courthouse.

Noémie Tellier will have to live with her parents and will be subject to a curfew at night. To obtain her freedom, she deposited a sum of $10,000 and third parties pledged several thousand dollars.

He will be prohibited from communicating with his alleged accomplices and from communicating with Wesley McKenzie. She will also not be able to refer to this man on social networks.

Me Claudia Carbonneau and Me Valérie Michaud represents the public prosecutor, while Me Nellie Benoit defends the accused.

The case will return at the end of May to the Joliette courthouse.
