A 40-year-old man from Nash Creek, New Brunswick, has been sentenced to eight years in prison for the murder of a 39-year-old man from Belledune two years ago.

Police responded to a home on Highway 134 in Nash Creek at approximately 10:35 a.m. on November 6, 2022 in reference to another matter.

At the scene, officers spoke to a 39-year-old man who said he had just shot someone.

Police then found the body of 39-year-old Scott Devereaux behind a shed on the property.

Nathan Meade, 40, appeared in provincial court in Campbellton on November 7, 2022, and was charged with second-degree murder. Meade was subsequently remanded in custody.

On May 29 of this year, he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter. The second-degree murder charge was subsequently dropped.

Meade appeared in Campbellton District Court on Monday, where he was sentenced to eight years in prison, minus time already served.
