South African born boy found guilty of murder in New Zealand

A teenager who murdered his schoolmate in New Zealand has been identified as a South African. Theo Kriel was only 14 when he killed 15-year-old Liberty Templeman.

Kriel was found guilty of the murder by a judge in the Whangarei High Court yesterday.

His identity was kept secret from the time of his arrest over 15 months ago until a judge ruled that it was in the public interest to name him.

Templeman’s body was found face down in a stream in an abandoned orchard in The Bay of Islands in 2008, a day after she went missing. Kriel admits he killed her, but says he did not mean to do it.
