From Morning Report, 8:25 am on 16 May 2017

The terminally ill prisoner Vicki Letele has died at her home. Letele was released from prison to die at home following a campaign by her family and prisoner advocates. Jarrod Gilbert, a sociologist and independent researcher and lecturer at the University of Canterbury, says it appears the parole board made the right decision in the face of overwhelming public support.
