    Dunedin Doctor Venod Skantha has been found guilty of murder

    Dunedin Doctor Venod Skantha has been found guilty of murder


    The jury deliberated for just over 3 hours, after the judge summed up the month long trial earlier today

    Skantha was also found guilty of four charges of threatening to kill.

    He'd pleaded not guilty to murdering teenager Amber Rose Rush earlier this year.

    His defence had tried to pin blame on a teenager who gave evidence for the prosecution, but the jury didn't accept that argument.
