ONE NewsDavid BainThere will be no further inquest into the deaths of five members of the Bain family in 1994 unless ordered by the Solicitor-General or the High Court.David Bain, 37, was acquitted of the murders of his parents and three siblings at a retrial which ended last month in the High Court at Christchurch.He had spent 13 years in prison after originally been convicted of the crimes.The defence case at the retrial was that his father, Robin Bain, killed the family members and then committed suicide.The verdicts placed the accuracy of the family's death certificates into question.Chief Coroner Neil MacLean said last month he would discuss the matter with former Dunedin coroner Jim Conradson and current Dunedin Coroner David Crerar to assess the death certificates and whether they felt an inquest was needed.Judge MacLean said on Wednesday the inquest that was opened by the Dunedin coroner was completed in terms of the provisions of the Coroners Act 1988.Advertisement "There is no open inquest into the deaths."Any further coronial investigation into the deaths could be undertaken only following an order by the Solicitor-General or by the High Court, he says.Tools: Email Print Text SizeShare this article: Bebo Facebook Digg Delicious more»
