Shocking new details have emerged in the case of a man whose body was found in a shallow grave in the central North Island.

Wang Baochang - known as Ricky Wang - went missing in 2017 and his body was found buried near Tongariro in March. Mr Wang's close friend was sentenced to 14 months for helping to cover up the killing, which was allegedly carried out by two other men who are yet to stand trial for murder.

Matthew Theunissen was in court.
