TV 3 6pm Bulletin

WATSON VERDICT: After 21 hours of deliberation the jury in the Scott Watson murder trial has found Watson guilty. He has been handed a sentence of life imprisonment without possibility of parole for ten years. The Crown is likely to ask for this period to be lengthened, a request which is likely to be honoured due to Watson’s previous criminal convictions as well as his failure to plead guilty, show remorse, or reveal where the bodies were dumped. The families of Olivia Hope and Ben Smart have issued a plea to the family of Watson to reveal where the remains of their children are.
