Wed 16 Sep - Crown applies to extend minimum parole period
Convicted double-murderer Scott Watson may not be eligible for parole when he's 38 as the Crown files an application to extend his minimum parole period.
Watson is serving a life sentence for murdering Ben Smart and Olivia Hope, and is eligible for parole in ten years' time.

However trial judge Justice Heron will decide whether to set a longer non-parole period early next month.

Meanwhile, Watson's lawyers are appealing against his conviction, but haven't yet filed the relevant papers with the Court of Appeal in Wellington.
