Dunedin blogger to appear in court

A Dunedin blogger will appear in court after allegedly publishing suppressed details of a coroner's finding.

Elizabeth Kerr is due to appear in the Dunedin District Court on Friday.

She is alleged to have revealed on her website last December details relating to the death of former Citifleet team leader Brent Bachop, in breach of a coroner's prohibition order.
