Not Guilty

NZ Herald

It looks like Crown Law copped another one in the chook:

Ewen Macdonald has been found not guilty of murdering his brother-in-law Scott Guy by a jury in the High Court at Wellington.

Mr Guy’s wife Kylee Guy cried out “he killed my husband” in tears and left the courtroom. Macdonald was tearful as the verdict was given.

His wife Anna Macdonald, Mr Guy’s sister, held onto her father Bryan Guy’s arm and cried as the verdict was delivered.

Macdonald’s parents, Kerry and Marlene Macdonald, sat on the opposite side of the court, behind the dock.

Justice Simon France remanded Macdonald in custody for a callover in Palmerston District Court on July 31.

The callover is to set a sentencing date for other charges, including arson and criminal damage, to which Macdonald earlier pleaded guilty.

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.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
