    The Crown has just started wrapping up its case against a Dunedin doctor accused of murder

    The Crown has just started wrapping up its case against a Dunedin doctor accused of murder


    Venod Skantha's denied killing 16-year-old Amber-Rose Rush - who was found dead in her Corstorphine home last year.

    Crown lawyer Robin Bates has told the jury they wouldn't be human if they didn't find the last three weeks distressing.

    But he says the Crown must prove homicide beyond reasonable doubt - by showing the defendant killed Amber-Rose, and that they intended to kill her.

    Bates says there's no question whoever did this intended to kill her.
