    A murder charge has been thrown out - on the day a man was due to stand trial for strangling his girlfriend

    A murder charge has been thrown out - on the day a man was due to stand trial for strangling his girlfriend


    Paddy Jonathan Woods was accused of murdering a Wellington transgender woman in February last year.

    21-year-old Zena Campbell was found dead in a car in Aro Valley after attending a party the night before.

    Justice David Collins says a jury could not reasonably be satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that Woods caused her death.

    He's based the decision on evidence from a pathologist who has told the court evidence of compression to Zena's neck cannot confidently be said to have caused her death.
