Death trio in court again

1:24 pm on 22 December 2011

Three people facing charges in relation to the death of a Christchurch teenager appeared in court on Thursday morning.

Hayden Miles, 15, went missing on 22 August.

Police recovered his remains from a unmarked grave in a Linwood cemetery on 13 December.

A psychiatric report has been ordered for a man, 27, who is charged with murder.

A woman, 18, also reappeared in Christchurch District Court on a charge of helping the murder-accused to avoid arrest. A third person appeared in a marae court on a charge of robbing the teenager.

All three have name suppression. They will reappear in court next year.
