Expert rejects Lundy evidence

Monday, March 28, 2005 (09:34:39)
A computer forensics expert who has spent up to 400 hours examining evidence in the Mark Lundy murder case says he has ruled out police claims that Lundy manipulated a computer clock to give himself an alibi. The Crown at Lundy's trial in 2002 claimed that after murdering his wife Christine and daughter Amber in their Palmerston North home, Lundy tampered with the clock to make it appear the computer was shut down at 10.52pm - when he was 150km away in Petone...

Judge in Jackson trial: Computer images inadmissible

Thursday, March 24, 2005 (06:37:30)
Computers seized from Michael Jackson's bedroom and containing stored images of naked women from adult Web sites are not admissible at the singer's child-molestation trial, Superior Court Judge Rodney Melville ruled Wednesday. Melville said he barred the materials because it was unclear if anyone actually viewed or downloaded the images that were stored on four computer hard drives. In arguing to bar the material, defense attorney Robert Sanger said that the origins of the images were murky. For example, Sanger said they could have been sent as an unsolicited e-mail before landing in the computers' "cache" file. Sanger added that it was unclear if Jackson himself had used the computer.
