Man Murdered in Christchurch
A woman has appeared in court in Christchurch today on a charge of murdering a man at a residential address.
Details here at Stuff.co.nz
The 22-year-old appeared in the Christchurch District Court this morning charged with murdering an “unknown male” yesterday.
Court documents allege she murdered him “manually”.
I hope that wasn’t a bit of ‘detective humour’.
The names are subject to suppression orders but earlier reports in the Herald stated that a couple had recently separated and the father had left the house with their three children.
It has not been disclosed to date whether the father is the deceased or whether the deceased is another man; the same Herald report stated that the accused’s father had been at the address helping his daughter.
Update 30th April
Christchurch Police have launched a new scene examination as part of the homicide investigation.
The body of the man, whose identity has been suppressed, was found at an Earnslaw property on Sunday.
A 22-year-old woman has been charged with his murder.
Detectives and forensic experts this morning executed a search warrant on a address in Conference Street in the inner city where a scene examination is underway.
Detective Inspector Greg Murton says significant activity is believed to have occurred at that address resulting in the death of the man.
There appears to be an interesting story developing here.
It has become common recently for cases involving female offenders to disappear off the media radar.
Anyone hear what happened to that woman who drove a car onto a suburban footpath in Hamilton in an attempt to run down her partner?
Update from the remand at 16th May.
Finally, after three years,
How the hell is that not murder?
6, It IS MURDER !,
Samson has been charged with murder for three years, but she cant be tried for murder because she said she didnt do it and she doesn’t have – murderers genitals.
So prosecutors decided to “AMEND” the charge to manslaughter which she said she did do.
She tied, beat and tortured Cory for hours before wrapping a cord three times around his neck and killing him.
Compare this to the Clayton Weatherstone case, he got his photo in every paper and media for weeks and 18 years no parole,
No pictures of her released, and her sentence will probably be half that at best.
I wonder if he even will be on record as a victim of domestic violence?
Justice Cameron Mander included a non-parole period of three years and three months. Samson has already served that term since being arrested for the April 27, 2014, killing, but she will have to face the Parole Board to apply for her release.
Yes our Justice system has has got cancer.
This case is obscene to any standard of behaviour other than the behaviour of lawyers.
So much for the Queen’s Peace, that promise to ALL her subjects, or others under her protection, for the security of life and goods.
In the absence of public accountability, this is what happens. These judges don’t appear to understand when they go far off the tracks, total delusion. Likely to get worse, before it gets better for the public.
