Details suppressed

A woman who acted as an accessory to a Dunedin homicide has been jailed for 13 months.

Tialoren Topping (48) appeared in the High Court at Dunedin yesterday where Justice Rob Osborne sentenced her and suppressed all the facts of the case.

The heavy suppression order means the Otago Daily Times is unable to publish the name of victim, any other parties involved with the case or where and when it took place.

Suppression may be lifted next year.
