Tue 26 Apr 2016 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

Beauen Wallace-Loretz (l) and Leonard Nattrass-Bergquist 12.50PM: Two youths have just been found by a high court jury to be guilty of murdering gay man Ihaia Gillman-Harris in December 2014. After an almost three-week-long trial and into their third day of deliberations the jury of three men and one woman found Leonard Nattrass-Berquist and Beauen Wallace-Loretz guilty of murder. They have each also been found guilty of aggravated robbery and stealing Gillman-Harris's Range Rover. In court Nattrass-Berquist, who has remained largely impassive during the trial listened to the verdict in silence; Wallace-Loretz, who has for much of the trial sat hunched over and apparently doing Sudoku puzzles, swore at the jury and court. The pair will be sentenced in May.
