Desert Road shallow grave trial begins

From Morning Report, 8:51 am on 27 July 2021

The trial of two men accused over the mysterious death and entombment of an underworld drug figure has started in Auckland.

The remains of Wang Baochang, known as Ricky Wang, were found set in concrete off the Desert Road, two and a half years after he went missing.

Five men were eventually charged - three have already pleaded guilty to helping hide the body.

Jordan Bond was in the Auckland High Court - and a warning, some of you may find the details in this case distressing.
