From Checkpoint, 5:14 pm on 26 March 2019

The chances of serial rapist Malcolm Rewa ever seeing a life outside bars are now even slimmer after he was sentenced to life in jail for Susan Burdett's murder, 27 years after she was killed in her Papatoetoe home.

After five trials and one of the country's most infamous miscarriages of justice, Rewa was finally sentenced today in the High Court in Auckland.

Our court reporter Anneke Smith was there and filed this report.
