Fatal shooting at liquor store

Fatal shooting at liquor store

A video security camera captures the face of one of the armed robbers involved in the murder of a Manurewa liquor-store owner and father of three on 7 June 2008. Seven men were charged with offences relating to the murder. This fatal armed robbery prompted deep concerns in the community about the safety of residents, especially small shopkeepers. Anitelea Chan-Kee, 22, who had earlier admitted to aggravated robbery, was found guilty of this murder in March 2010. One of the men arrested was discharged and the other five either admitted charges of aggravated robbery or were found guilty of these charges. A spokesperson for the shopkeeper’s widow said she was shocked that only one person had been convicted of murder.
