    A trio on trial over a jailhouse stabbing death have been cleared of murder -- but one's been found guilty of manslaughter

    A trio on trial over a jailhouse stabbing death have been cleared of murder -- but one's been found guilty of manslaughter


    Paul Tuliloa , Riki Ngamoki and Lopeti Telefoni pleaded not guilty to murdering fellow inmate Blake Lee at Auckland Prison in March last year.

    Jurors at the High Court in Auckland found Telefoni guilty of manslaughter.

    Senior Crips gang member Siuaki Lisiate earlier pleaded guilty to Lee's murder last month.

    Telefoni threw the first punch at Lee -- but CCTV footage showed Lisiate carried out most of the violence.
