Night Talk: Mitch Harris opening comments, Tuesday 11th December 2018.

Tonight: People want to help fight violence in New Zealand after the death of Grace Millane, but will lighting a candle do that? Would you be OK with a small tax rise to help fight violence in NZ?

Grace Millane is one of six people killed in New Zealand in the last 11 days.

Among them was a woman attacked at her home in South Auckland, allegedly by a man she knew.

He's now been charged with murder.

Forensics were at the scene today, where locals say a child's screams rang out across the quiet suburban neighbourhood on Monday night.

"The small boy was screaming mum, mum, mum," one resident told Newshub.

Police say they were called to a house in Flatbush in the city's southeast about 10pm on Monday night after they were alerted to a woman being attacked.

It's around this time that this neighbour, who didn't want to go on camera, says the woman's child started screaming.
