    The man who was pardoned of the infamous 1970 Crewe murders is on trial for historical sexual offending


    A jury of eight men and four women has been selected to decide the fate of Arthur Allan Thomas at Auckland's Manukau District Court.

    The 83-year-old faces four charges of indecent assault and one charge of rape.

    All are historical in nature.

    The allegations relate to two complainants, who came forward to police in 2019.

    Thomas has pleaded not guilty to all five charges.

    The trial's set down for 10 days.
