Rest home death finding near
The outcome of a police investigation into the death of a Feilding rest home resident is expected in about a week.
The investigation followed an altercation between a male resident at Wimbledon Villa and another resident.
The man died in Palmerston North Hospital but the death was not referred to the coroner.
Senior management at the Manawatu CIB will decide in about a week which court will hear the matter.
" . . . it doesn't meet all the prosecution guidelines for us to commence a prosecution," Detective Shelley Ross said.
"Once it has been reviewed at management level here, it is likely to be directed to the coroner's court, not the district court."
