Saskatchewan lovers talked on secret recording about plans to kill spouses

May 27, 2016 - 5:21 PM

PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. - A man and his mistress accused of planning to kill their spouses talked on a secret tape recording about faking a will, complete with a forged signature, after one of their targets disappeared.

Curtis Vey, 52, and Angela Nicholson, 51, are accused of conspiracy to commit murder against Brigitte Vey and Jim Taylor.

In a video interview with RCMP, two officers discussed with Vey an audio recording that Brigitte Vey had secretly taped of the lovers at her Wakaw farmhouse on July 1, 2013.

On the tape played in court, the two are heard talking about doctoring Jim Taylor's coffee with sleeping pills, making him disappear, and planting a will that would leave everything to Nicholson and her two daughters.

The pair also talk about using sleeping pills on Vey's wife and setting Vey's house on fire.

Vey and Nicholson also spoke about putting the plans in motion on Nov. 1, 2013 for Taylor, and a few months later for Brigitte Vey while Vey was away at the crop production show with a friend in January.

Officers said to Vey that burning a house down in the winter would leave him without a home.

"Like I said, it was discussion. There was no concrete. It was … if you want to call it, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants type of thing."

Vey also admitted to police that he and Nicholson had two discussions around plans to kill his wife and her husband.

"But there's a difference between that and actually doing it," Vey said.

The RCMP officers also asked Vey what he would say if he had the opportunity to talk to his wife.

"The first thing I'd like to tell her is, Number 1 is … no doubt about it, I love her. The second thing is, it was wrong to even think of those thoughts. Should have never thought of those."

The trial continues next week at the Prince Albert Court of Queen's Bench.
