Warning: Some of the details of this story may be distressing to some people.

A Southland teenager will spend at least the next 11 years behind bars for murdering nine-year-old Hunter MacIntosh, a child he was supposed to be babysitting.

The child's killer was this afternoon revealed as Daniel Cameron, when the 16-year-old lost name suppression during his sentencing in the High Court at Invercargill.

RNZ's Timothy Brown was in court and filed this report.
