Beddau murder couple 'abandoned children' in New Zealand

Archive television footage from New Zealand has shown a Beddau couple at the centre of a murder investigation being challenged by the children they abandoned there.

The remains of John Sabine were found wrapped in plastic in the garden of a flat in Rhondda Cynon Taff which he had shared with his late wife, Lee Anne, who is the main suspect.

Mr Sabine was last seen in 1997 and is believed to have moved to Beddau in the same year.

Footage from One News shows some of his five grown-up children confronting the couple after they returned to New Zealand, years after leaving the children in the care of the New Zealand authorities when they went to Australia.

Caroline Evans reports.
