    The forensic scientists who examined the brutal wounds inflicted on a Dunedin teen, are about to take the stand at her murder trial

    The forensic scientists who examined the brutal wounds inflicted on a Dunedin teen, are about to take the stand at her murder trial


    The first week of 32-year-old Doctor Venod Skantha's trial is wrapping up.

    Skantha is charged with murdering 16-year-old Amber-Rose Rush.

    Today the Court will hear from the forensic pathologists who examined her body - as well as CCTV and telecommunications experts.

    The crown is leading up to its key witness in the case - a teenage boy who claims he drove the doctor to Amber-Rose's house the night she was killed.
