7. SCOTT WATSON TRIAL: Most expensive trial in NZ history. Extra room made
for media. Footage from the trial. Watson took water taxi back to yacht
and offered Olivia Hope and Ben Smart a berth. Crown says forensic
evidence suggests Watson had murdered the couple. "He went to great links
to avoid leaving any connection to the couple". Two blond hairs and
fingernail scratches play prominent role.

Almost 500 witnesses to be called. Many were boat-owners at Furneaux
lodge. Crown case is that by a process of elimination the couple must have
got on Scott Watson's boat. Defence may not open till some time in August.
