Jeannotte faces the same charges as Herrick. 

Stinson and bolduc are charged with being a party to the offence of first-degree murder, being party to attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, and being party to the offence of arson with disregard for human life.

The fire killed Guy Henri, 49, Jasmine Somers, 27, and Jamie Lynn Rose. Another man, David Cheff, survived by jumping out a window on the second floor.

Superior Court Justice Dan Gordon is presiding.

The review will continue March 28 at 9:30 a.m.
