The lawyer of the man who shot two Auckland police officers, killing one, says Eli Epiha’s 27-year jail sentence was “disproportionately harsh” and “crushing”, Stuff reports. The two police officers thought they would be assisting an injured person, but instead they were shot at. At the sentencing, Justice Venning said Epiha displayed no concern for anyone but himself that day and it was a cold-blooded and callous killing.
