    Crown lawyers have rejected the Defence's main argument - in the last days of the murder trial of a Dunedin doctor

    Crown lawyers have rejected the Defence's main argument - in the last days of the murder trial of a Dunedin doctor


    Venod Skantha denies killing 16-year-old Amber-Rose Rush.

    The Defence previously argued the Crown's key witness - a teenage friend of Skantha - was the real killer.

    But Crown lawyer Robin Bates says there's no way the teen was responsible.

    He says the boy would've had to be both a criminal mastermind - and a magician who could pull a knife out of nowhere.
