Name suppression lifted for Invercargill murder accused
An Invercargill teenager accused of murder can now be named.
Name suppression for Georgia Rose Dickey, 16, lapsed on Thursday evening.
She had earlier been unsuccessful in her bid for continued name suppression in the High Court at Invercargill and did not appeal the decision.
Dickey is one of seven people charged with the murder of Jack Thomas Mcallister, who was allegedly attacked at Stadium Southland on June 7.
Mcallister was 19 when he died, the day after the alleged attack.
Seven people have been charged with murder but two cannot be named due to court orders.
Those that can be named are Dickie, Brayden Whiting-Roff, 20, Christopher James Brown, 19, Laura Scheepers, 18, and David Allan Wilson, 18.
All seven defendants are scheduled to appear in the High Court at Invercargill court for a case review on August 29.
