Trial of a woman and her son has taken an unusual twist

BURLINGTON — The planned joint trial of a former Williston woman and her son on murder charges for killing her husband during a nighttime ambush in Hinesburg four years ago has taken an unusual twist when Korey Lee George pleaded guilty and said his mother pulled the trigger. George, 35, struck a plea deal that is expected to get him a prison term of 18 years to life for pleading guilty to conspiring with his mother, Angela M. Auclair, to kill her husband, David Auclair, 45, of Williston, at a rural parking area off Gilman Road in Hinesburg on July 11, 2019. George is expected to be a key witness against his mother when she goes on trial in October.
