    A Christchurch teenager who killed another in a one-punch attack, and then bragged about it in a rap video on social media, has failed in his bid to reduce his prison time

    A Christchurch teenager who killed another in a one-punch attack, and then bragged about it in a rap video on social media, has failed in his bid to reduce his prison time


    Armani Williams was jailed for three years after fatally punching 18-year-old Levi Haami in Christchurch, in December 2021.

    He pleaded guilty to manslaughter but Open Justice reports he appealed his jail term, arguing it was "manifestly excessive".

    The 18-year-old argued the five-year starting point was too high, and his youth and background factors deserved higher reductions.

    The Court of Appeal disagreed.
