Jindarat Prutsiriporn © NZ Police Jindarat Prutsiriporn One of the 11 people arrested following the death of a woman who fell from a car boot in south Auckland has pleaded guilty to kidnapping.

Jindarat Prutsiriporn, 50, died from a serious head injury after falling from the boot of a moving car in the suburb of Papatoetoe in March last year.

At the High Court at Auckland on Wednesday, one of the 11 people arrested following the incident, Becoylee Paleaaesina, pleaded guilty to the charge of kidnapping he faced.

He will be sentenced in May.

It comes after another of the group, Cecilia Hansen, was last month sentenced to home detention after also pleading guilty to kidnapping.

The details of both cases have been suppressed, with a trial for the remaining defendants due to start next month.

Six of the remaining accused face a charge of manslaughter each, while the rest are charged with kidnapping.

All deny the charges.
