Man pleads guilty to police officer‘s murder
A man has pleaded guilty to the murder of Auckland police constable, Matthew Hunt, during a routine traffic stop in June last year.
Meanwhile, a second officer who was shot and seriously injured can now be named as David Goldfinch.
Eli Epiha, 25, pleaded guilty last Wednesday to Hunt's murder and dangerous driving.
A court order meant the plea could not be reported until now.
Epiha denies the attempted murder of Goldfinch.
He is on trial before a jury in the High Court at Auckland.
Natalie Bracken is also on trial, charged with being an accessory to murder by driving the getaway car.
The trial is set down for three weeks.
