STONY PLAIN, Alta. - Linda Jean McNall and her mother had lived most of their lives together, caring for each other, so when the senior's health worsened, the pair struck a suicide pact.
They sold everything they owned, wrote letters to their creditors and gave up their apartment in Sierra Vista, Ariz.
Then they drove north to Alberta.
Court heard Tuesday that the women decided to end their lives in a tent, pitched in a secluded mountain area near Rock Lake, about 350 kilometres west of Edmonton.
