teenage girl who admitted her part in murdering a retired Bay of Plenty teacher has had her jail term cut by seven years after being sentenced for the second time. Lori-Lea Waiora Te Wini, 17, originally jailed for 17 years, was sentenced to a minimum non-parole period of 10 years in the High Court at Rotorua on Friday for the 2008 murder of 79-year-old John Rowe. Mr Rowe was found dead at his Opotiki home. He had been viciously beaten with his own sticks - one a heavy walking stick.
