leave a comment »

Malcolm Ngeru, 44, unemployed of Taita, had pleaded not guilty to murdering Mihi Tuhoro on July 20 2008. He admitted killing her but said he did not have the intent to do so because he was so drunk, and was instead guilty of manslaughter.

A jury in the High Court in late October 2009 took more than 10 hours to find him guilty of murder. He remanded in custody to and today his sentence was past.

Hutt Valley man Malcolm Ngeru, 43, was jailed for life with a minimum non-parole period of 12 years when he appeared for sentence at the High Court in Wellington after being found guilty in October of murdering his partner Mihi Tuhoro, 48.

Please read the article in Stuff to gain a perspective on this mans actions which are abhorrent. I mentioned in a previous post about the attitude and outcomes of the disenfranchised that seen to be placed in Taita / Pomare by social agencies.

I for one am over the disrespect certain types in our society have toward others. This is a perfect example. Again I hope life, was the true term of his sentence, but feel again that I it won’t be (12 years non parole) I like many others move stronger toward what the Sensible Sentencing Trust advocates, sentences that stand up to their terms, life means life.
