    From the above link:

    "Lt. Wayne Kline, crime section commander of Pennsylvania State Police Troop E in Lawrence Park Township, said that Karen Leclair died from a single gunshot wound to the head from a .38 caliber Smith & Wesson revolver.

    State police investigators accuse Christopher S. Leclair of tying his wife’s ankles with rope and securing another rope around her chest containing an anchor attached to it. The anchor was a type commonly used for fishing nets and was not heavy enough to keep her down, Kline said.

    The anchor was still attached to Karen Leclair when her body was found in Lake Erie, Kline said.

    Investigators recovered the Smith & Wesson revolver Wednesday at the home of Christopher and Karen Leclair, Kline said."

    Lake Erie homicide defendant’s father held for court

    http://www.goerie.com/news/20170905/...held-for-court

    A homicide defendant accused in his wife’s death on Lake Erie instructed his father to make a .38-caliber handgun “vanish,” a state police trooper testified Tuesday.

    The father, 75-year-old Ernest C. Leclair, of Florida, was held for court on a second-degree misdemeanor count tampering with evidence following his preliminary hearing Tuesday before Springfield Township District Judge Chris MacKendrick.

    Prosecutors seek first-degree murder conviction in Leclair case

    http://www.goerie.com/news/20171115/...n-leclair-case

    A trial date was not set in court Tuesday morning during 48-year-old Christopher S. Leclair’s formal arraignment before Erie County President Judge John J. Trucilla on charges of criminal homicide, aggravated assault, abuses of a corpse, tampering with evidence, possessing an instrument of crime, carrying a firearm without a license and false reports in the death of 51-year-old Karen Leclair.

    “At this time it’s a first-degree murder case,” District Attorney Jack Daneri said in court.
    State police also charged Leclair’s father, 75-year-old Florida resident Ernest C. Leclair, with tampering with evidence on allegations he moved a gun hidden in the Leclairs’ residence on Route 6N at the request of Leclair. Ernest Leclair, who is free on bail, is scheduled for trial in March, according to court documents.

    Lake Erie homicide defendant’s father wants tampering charge tossed

    http://www.goerie.com/news/20171125/...-charge-tossed

    Placidi argued in the motion to dismiss Ernest Leclair’s case that Leclair was cooperative with investigators and did not make the gun “disappear” as his son requested. The gun was also moved before it became public that Karen Leclair had died of a gunshot wound, Placidi wrote.

    “The defendant merely removed a gun from the basement rafters and placed the gun under the drawer underneath a bed,” Placidi wrote.

    Erie County Judge William R. Cunningham will consider the motion at a hearing Jan 3. The prosecution will also have a chance to respond to the motion.
    Christopher Leclair remains in the Erie County Prison without bond. Prosecutors have said they will seek a first-degree murder conviction against him at his trial, which is scheduled for April.

    http://www.goerie.com/news/20180113/...case-dismissed

    A man accused of killing his wife on Lake Erie’s waters is asking that his case be dismissed in Erie County court because, the defense claims, it’s not clear whether the homicide occurred in Pennsylvania.

    He’s also asking for a change of venue due to heavy media coverage of the case.

    The defense lawyer for 48-year-old Christopher S. Leclair argued in a court filing Thursday that the Erie County District Attorney’s Office has not established where Leclair’s wife, Karen Leclair, was killed.

    Tampering case to proceed against dad in Lake Erie killing

    A judge has denied a request to dismiss the case against a Florida man accused of moving a gun at the request of his son, Christopher Leclair, who had been charged with killing his wife while boating on Lake Erie in June.

    The second-degree misdemeanor count of tampering with evidence against 75-year-old Ernest C. Leclair will proceed to trial, Erie County Judge William R. Cunningham ruled Wednesday afternoon.
    DA: Leclair stayed in Pa. waters in Lake Erie homicide

    Leclair, 48, is accused of killing his 51-year-old wife, Karen Leclair, while the couple was on Lake Erie aboard the fishing boat on June 10. He has asked a judge to dismiss the case against him because, his lawyer wrote, the prosecution did not establish whether the crime happened in Pennsylvania.

    In a response filed last week in Erie County Court, Assistant District Attorney Paul Sellers wrote the radar pings show Leclair’s boat, the Doris-M, never went more than 4 miles off the coast of Presque Isle State Park.

    “At no point during the commission of this crime did he leave the jurisdiction of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” he wrote.
