At Fortress Louisbourg, the trial of Pierre LeRoy and Anne Lando took place, and both were accused of murdering Lando’s husband. They were both found guilty and sentenced to death. LeRoy was executed that summer, strangled and broken on the wheel. Lando was hung and burned, with her ashes thrown to the wind. That same summer, a number of French soldiers who had deserted were captured. All were executed by hanging.
