Backpacker Grace Millane's killer sentenced

The man who killed a British female backpacker in 2018 has been sentenced to life in prison.

The killer will spend at least 17 years in prison for the 2018 killing of Grace Millane.

The convicted killer, 28, who still cannot be named for legal reasons, was found guilty and convicted last November for the December 2018 death.

This morning he was led into the dock, flanked by two court security guards in the High Court at Auckland.
