Ex-councillor on murder charge
Charged: Peter Beckett
Drowned: Laura Letts Beckett
Former Napier city councillor Peter
Beckett, 54, has appeared in a Can-
adian court charged with the murder
of his wife, Laura Letts Beckett, one
year after she was believed to have
drowned in a boating accident.
Mrs Letts Beckett, who could not
swim, was not wearing a life jacket
when she went over the side of a boat
during a fishing trip at a national
park near Revelstone in British
The death of the Canadian teacher
has been considered a homicide since
June and her husband was arrested
and charged with murder this month.
The New Zealand family learned of
the arrest when the Royal Canadian
Mounted Police phoned to speak with
Beckett's ex-wife, Wendy Sail.
Her husband, Chris Sail, said the
four grown-up children she had with
Mr Beckett, aged 18 to 30, had not
been in contact with him since he left
New Zealand at least seven years ago.
It was traumatic for the children,
and his 18-year-old daughter had
taken it particularly badly. Two of the
older children live in Australia and
one is in England on her OE.
Ms Letts Beckett's family released
a statement after Beckett's arrest,
saying they were relieved the investi-
gation was over, and that as a family
they are waiting for the justice sys-
tem to take its course.
