A jury in Dunedin has heard a former doctor allegedly killed a 16-year-old girl to stop her coming forward with allegations of inappropriate behaviour. Venod Skantha is on trial for murdering Amber-Rose Rush and threatening to kill four others to cover up the crime. RNZ Otago-Southland reporter Timothy Brown was in court and filed this report.
