Former Fiji resident Rohit Deepak Singh who is spending life behind bars for the brutal murder of his former partner will appeal his conviction after a jury took just 40 minutes to find him guilty.
The NZ Herald reports later this month Singh will return to court as he challenges both his conviction and sentence in the Court of Appeal in New Zealand.
Singh was found guilty of the murder of his ex‑girlfriend Arishma Chand in New Zealand and was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum period of imprisonment of 19 years.
24-year-old Chand was killed during the early hours of November in 2017, after her ex boyfriend lay in wait at her Manurewa house with a large kitchen knife.
