    Man admits hit-and-run murder of jogger

    A man has admitted the murder of a New Plymouth mum of two who was struck by a car while out jogging near the city last year.


    A man accused of the hit-and-run death of a female jogger near New Plymouth last October has pleaded guilty to her murder.

    Matthew Kinghorn, 28, admitted murdering 45-year-old New Plymouth woman Anne Elizabeth McCullough after running her down in his car.

    Kinghorn, who was originally charged with manslaughter before the charge was upgraded, entered the plea in the High Court at New Plymouth on Friday.

    Mrs McCullough, a mother of two, was found in the back seat of the purple Holden Commodore near a place known as Meeting of the Waters, south of New Plymouth.

    She had been out running on a rural road on October 20 last year.

    Kinghorn has been in custody since his arrest on the day of the murder and will be sentenced on December 3.
