“The defence is not suggesting Ms Millane is to blame; she is not to blame,” so defence counsel Ian Brookie assured the Auckland Court in the Grace Millane murder trial.
Well that’s good to know that Grace didn’t strangle herself and somehow during a brief Second Coming, squeeze herself into a suitcase, get herself to the Waitakere Ranges, dig a hole, bury herself, then resume being dead.
Brookie is setting up for the “women love rough sex” defence.
Maybe yes but not *this* rough Your Honour she would say from the suitcase.
Client with name suppression.
Would you let your daughter go out with this young chap? Question to every male on jury.
Probably not. Needless to mention the unfine establishments he took her to. Not son in law material.
