Two New Zealand women jailed for killing Indian-origin man

Wellington, Dec 17 (IANS) Two women in the New Zealand have been jailed for eight years and eight months each for killing an Indian man after luring him with promises of sex.

Wellington, Dec 17 — Two women in the New Zealand have been jailed for eight years and eight months each for killing an Indian man after luring him with promises of sex.

Crystal Black, 26, and her partner Krystel Pokai, 25, appeared before Justice Murray Gilbert in the high court at Gisborne city in northeastern New Zealand Monday in connection with the murder of Amandeep Singh, 22, who was reported missing Jan 1 this year, His badly decomposed body was found in bushes on Kaiti beach Jan 24, Fairfax media reported Tuesday.

The two accused pleaded guilty to manslaughter, as well as to charges of car conversion, theft of Singh's credit card and attempt to pervert the course of justice.

Singh was living and working in Gisborne at the time of his killing.

Singh offered Pokai a lift while she was returning home alone and she accepted Dec 28. Both of them exchanged phone numbers.

Pokai and Singh met the next day. Text messages between the two show that he wanted to have sex, but she did not.

Pokai and Black spent the rest of the day drinking with friends and texted Singh again, telling him Pokai had changed her mind.

Throughout the day there were 166 text messages between the women and Singh, who drove to their house and met the pair, who began acting as though they were single, concealing from him that they were actually a lesbian couple.

Around midnight, the three drove to Kaiti beach in Singh's car, where the two women beat him to death and dragged his body under some bushes.

The two then drove to Kaiti mall, and tried to use his bank card to withdraw money from a cash machine.

They used disinfectant and removed items from the car, including a black cardigan that had blood on it, and later burned the items.

They left Singh's car at an empty section, and returned home Dec 30.

Later that day, Black told her former partner, the father of her two children, that she and Pokai had killed Singh. Some time later, Black's relative and her former partner reported the crime.

The women gave police several different versions of what occurred initially but later claimed he had gone "psycho" at the beach, and that it was Black's relative who killed him.
