The man who murdered an elderly person with a bottle of whiskey in a Hamilton toilet is set to be sentenced today after a series of delays.

Turei Rawiri Kingi, 26, was due to be sentenced in November and December in the High Court at Hamilton for fatally attacking Jacques Donker with a full bottle of whiskey in a toilet block.

Kingi stole Mr Donker's car and police had to use road spikes to stop him.

He pleaded guilty to the killing in September.
