The image of the teenager accused of murdering Wellington journalist Phillip Cottrell can finally be shown following a judge's ruling today.

Manuel Renera Robinson, 18, was granted bail after he was charged last December 13 with murdering Mr Cottrell three days earlier as Mr Cottrell walked home after finishing his early morning shift at Radio New Zealand.

A court order prevented publication of Robinson's image until a hearing in the High Court at Wellington today.

Nicho Allan Waipuka, 20, is also charged with Mr Cottrell's murder.

The trial for both men is due to begin on December 3 in the High Court.

Is high tea at a funeral parlour your cup of tea?

Yes, it's fun and even educational.

Hmmm, I don't object but it's not for me.

No, it's macabre and in bad taste.

Over my dead body ...
