Auckland Jury Finds Federici Murdered His Wife
A jury in the Auckland High Court has found John Federici
guilty of murdering his wife.
Federici has been convicted
for strangling his wife to death and disposing of her body
in a green wheelie bin.
The Court had heard how Federici
and his wife were having marriage problems. The jury found
that the Australian born Federici had killed his wife in her
Onehunga home and then considered how to dispose of her
The Crown said Federici drove around the North
Island with her body dismembered in the wheelie bin. One of
the couple’s children was in the vehicle with him as he
planned on disposing of her remains.
The jury took four
hours to reach its verdict. Justice Dame Sylvia Cartwright
sentenced Federici to life

New Reports: Flood Risk From Rain And Sea Under Climate Change
One report looks at what would happen when rivers are flooded by heavy rain and storms, while the other examines flooding exposure in coastal and harbour areas and how that might change with sea-level rise.
Their findings show that across the country almost 700,000 people and 411,516 buildings worth $135 billion are presently exposed to river flooding in the event of extreme weather events...
There is near certainty that the sea will rise 20-30 cm by 2040. By the end of the century, depending on whether global greenhouse gas emissions are reduced, it could rise by between 0.5 to 1.1 m, which could add an additional 116,000 people exposed to extreme coastal storm flooding. More>>
