A story of interest for the shockingly young age of the boy, and the high-profile nature of the case.
A 14-year-old youth has appeared in court in New Zealand charged with the murder and aggravated robbery of backpacker Karen Aim from Orkney.
Miss Aim, 26, was found dying early on January 17, in the North Island lakeside resort of Taupo.
