Man faces sentence over infant death

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 20/07/2016

An Upper Hutt father is set to be sentenced for the killing of his 11-month old child seven years after her death.

Tawera Wichman, 24, last month pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of one of his two twins, Teegan Tairoa-Wichman, in 2009.

He will appear in the High Court at Wellington on Thursday to be sentenced.

The sentencing is one of two over the killing of babies in Wellington, with Michael Te Kouarehu Kereopa, 32, due to also appear on Thursday for the manslaughter of his partner's infant.
