Reuters – New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern fought back tears on Monday (December 10) in Wellington as she apologised on behalf of New Zealand to the family of Grace Millane for their daughter’s murder.

Ardern told reporters that the New Zealanders she had spoken to feeling an “overwhelming sense of hurt and shame” that this crime happened in New Zealand.

A 26-year-old man charged with her murder made his first appearance in Auckland District Court earlier in the day.

Grace Millane, who was travelling the world after finishing university, went missing on Dec. 1 in Auckland. On Saturday (December 8) police said that she was murdered and that they were questioning a man about the case, who was subsequently charged with her murder.
