Was Lacey Yekel murdered over drugs or did she die of an overdose? That is what the nine-man, three-woman jury will decide over the next several weeks as they hear arguments in the murder trial of Christopher Hebert, 47. He is accused of killing Yekel, who was 25 when she died, sometime around June 7, 2014. Her remains were discovered later that summer, around the end of August, wrapped in a tarp in woods near the Massena Industrial Park. Hebert was charged with the murder in June 2018. Lacey Yekel's cousin, Bobbi Jo French, and mother, Bonnie Lamay, leave St. Lawrence County Court on Thursday. North Country This Week photo by Andy Gardner. For more, see story here.
