Face of the Day

This nice scrubbed up well dressed man is actually a cold blooded granny killer, sentenced to life in prison. With a long history of offending it i highly likely that if we had three strikes laws years ago he may not have bashed or killed Yan Ping Yang. Remember Labour oppose three strikes legislation and have said they will repeal it.

For the second time, a man who brutally bashed a grandmother in her own home has been sentenced to life in prison.

Olinale Ah You, 32, will serve a minimum non-parole period of 18 years and six months for the 2008 murder of Yan Ping Yang in Manurewa.

In 2010 Ah You was found guilty of murder and handed a life sentence with a minimum 20 year non-parole period by Justice Edwin Wylie in the High Court at Auckland.

But early last year the Court of Appeal quashed the conviction and ordered a re-trial. The reason was suppressed.

In November a High Court jury again found Ah You guilty of the slaying.

At his sentencing today it emerged that Ah You had a long history of offending in both New Zealand and Australia and that he was already serving sentences for other crimes.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
