Thousands of words and hundreds of minutes of footage have been devoted to the trial of Ewen Macdonald.
Yesterday, he was found not guilty of murdering his brother-in-law Scott Guy in 2010.
Today, the media have devoted their front pages, homepages and bulletins to the outcome.
This is how they covered it.
Michael Cummings, the editor of the Manawatu Standard, says the reason the public was so captivated with the trial was because put simply, the Guy family are all of us.

The paper also reports a long shadow of doubt still looms over Feilding.
The New Zealand Herald profiles Greg King, the man who stole the show while defending Macdonald.
It also reports the marriage of Anna and Ewen is over.
TVNZ reporter Simon Bradwell gives his opinion of the verdict after sitting through most of the trial.
Toby Manhire, of The Listener, compiled front pages from around the country.
3 News reports women's magazines are reportedly lining up to cover the Guy family's story.
NewsTalk ZB interviews Law Society's Jonathan Krebs about whether there could be another trial.
A family friend interviewed by Radio New Zealand said the case had been like a horror movie.
