    The jury's now out in the case of a Dunedin doctor accused of murder

    The jury's now out in the case of a Dunedin doctor accused of murder


    Doctor Venod Skantha's High Court trial is drawing to a close - where he's pleaded not guilty to murdering 16-year-old Amber-Rose Rush.

    Justice Gerald Nation summarised the case for jurors today - including arguments by both Crown and Defence.

    He told them whoever cut Amber-Rose's neck clearly intended to kill her - so it's now up to them to decide whether the Crown proved it was Skantha beyond any reasonable doubt.

    The jury was officially released at 2.40 this afternoon.
