2:25 NZ Crimes: The 'Pamper Party' case
In October 2016, a group of women gathered in West Auckland for what was supposed to be a fun social event – a chance to do their nails, catch up with friends, and have a few drinks.
But the party took a bizarre and violent turn, when Anna Browne stabbed mother-of-two Carly Stewart to death.
The case became known as the ‘pamper party’ stabbing.
Browne was found guilty of murder in 2017 and sentenced to life imprisonment, with a minimum non-parole period of 12 years.
Defence lawyer, Marie Dyhrberg QC, represented Browne and spoke to us about the case.

3:27 History of liberty in a lockdown
New Zealand has changed dramatically in a week in response to Covid-19. Fundamental rights and liberties have been curtailed to assist in suppressing the virus.
