The court has reserved its decision in the appeal hearing over David Tamihere's double murder conviction.

The Crown has argued that despite perjured evidence, the case stands against Tamihere who was convicted and served 20-years for the murders of Swedish tourists Urban Höglin and Heidi Paakkonen.

A two-day hearing wrapped up in Wellington Wednesday afternoon.

Jemima Huston spoke to Charlotte Cook.
