Tay­lor guilty of killing Ihaka

The Dominion Post - - News -

Troy Tay­lor has been found guilty of the mur­der of Ihaka Stokes in the High Court at Christchurch. Tay­lor, the for­mer part­ner of Ihaka’s mother Mikala Stokes, was charged with mur­der­ing and as­sault­ing the tod­dler in July 2015. There was a gasp in the court­room as the ver­dicts were de­liv­ered yes­ter­day. Tay­lor was re­manded in cus­tody un­til June 9 for sen­tenc­ing. Tay­lor had pleaded not guilty and ac­cused Stokes of harm­ing her son on the af­ter­noon of July 3 while he was out of the house. The jury took four hours to con­vict Tay­lor on the two charges.
