Crimes NZ: The killing of David McNee

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:31 pm on 1 October 2020

We look back at the killing of television interior designer David McNee in 2003.

David’s killer used a partial 'provocation defence' which was at the time referred to as the 'gay panic' defence. Jesse speaks to Law Professor Elisabeth McDonald from Canterbury University.
