Hugo Bernier confessed to the rape and murder of Julie Boisvenu while behind bars awaiting trial, a jailhouse informant testified Wednesday at his first-degree murder trial.

The career criminal -- who cannot be identified for his own safety -- is the second Crown witness to whom Bernier allegedly confided details about the gruesome 2002 sex slaying that shocked Sherbrooke.

A childhood friend told the nine-woman, three-man jury this week that Bernier showed up at his apartment in the days after Boisvenu, 27, went missing and said he’d “killed someone and made a big mistake.”

Bernier’s cellmate said the accused told him a similar story: that he panicked and suffocated Boisvenu after sexually assaulting her.
I'm wondering if the second confession to the cellmate was somehow set-up by the SQ, and will the Defence chip away at this...
