A Raetihi woman will be tried in June for the manslaughter of
her 9-year-old son.
Claudine Michelle Herewini appeared before Justice Stephen
Kos via audio-visual link in the High Court at Wanganui
yesterday for a pre-trial hearing.
Her son Antony Christensen was found dead in his bed on
December 7 last year, and following the detection of
methadone in the post-mortem she was arrested and charged
with his manslaughter.
Herewini's jury trial is set to begin in the High Court at
Whanganui on June 23.
