A 28-year-old man who murdered a British backpacker in New Zealand was handed life imprisonment. The man had been assessed in his pre-sentencing report as being of ’very high risk’. Grace Millane, 22, from Essex, arrived in New Zealand in November 2018 as part of a round-the-world trip. She died by manual strangulation on 2 December during sex in an Auckland hotel room. The pair had met on Tinder.
