Blood-stained items shown at Waipouri trial

Thu 29 Nov 2007 In: New Zealand Daily News View at NDHA

Day three of Palmerston North gay man Stanley Waipouri's murder trial continued yesterday with expert scientific analysis of blood-stained items recovered from the crime scene. Janina Savage, a scientist at the Institute of Environmental Science and Research, gave the jury her analysis of multiple blood and footprint samples taken from Waipouri's flat the night he was killed, the Manawatu Standard reports today. The jury was shown several blood-stained items taken from the accused men - Benjamin Arnopp, 20, and Andre Gilling, 18 - including a knife, scissors, and candles with hair embedded in the wax. Savage is giving further evidence today and will undergo cross examination from defence counsels this afternoon.
