Verse of The Day
“Ko tenei hei whakaaro mo koutou, ko tera i a Karaiti Ihu: Ahakoa hoki i a ia te ahua o te Atua, kihai i meinga e ia te rite ki te Atua hei taonga kapo mai; Engari i mea i a ia ano kia poaha, ka mau ki te ahua o te pononga, ka meinga kia rite ki te tangata; A ka kitea nei tona ahua e rite ana ki to te tangata, ka whakapapaku ia i a ia, ka meinga kia ngohengohe ahakoa ki te mate, ae ra, ki te mate o te ripeka.” (Philippians 2:5-8)

Sam Oliver Spence, 21, from Hikurangi appeared in the High Court at Whangarei charged with wounding Daniel Hill with reckless disregard on January 21 last year.

The prosecution alleges Mr Spence threw the metre-long spear at Mr Hill after recognising the car he was in.

Mr Hill had earlier broken into the Mitsubishi car Mr Spence had travelled in to Whale Bay, north-east of Whangarei, and stolen CDs, a mobile phone and a wallet. He was convicted of theft in June last year.
