    Two men who broke into an Auckland home where they bashed and "hog tied" their victim before leaving him suffocating to death on a bed have been sentenced to 10-year jail terms

    Two men who broke into an Auckland home where they bashed and "hog tied" their victim before leaving him suffocating to death on a bed have been sentenced to 10-year jail terms


    35-year-old Don Ekeroma and 29-year-old Benny Fatu earlier pleaded guilty to robbing Shannon Shelby Baker during a home invasion at his Sandringham house in December 2018.

    However, both denied murdering him.

    A High Court at Auckland jury agreed, finding the pair guilty of manslaughter instead.
