Long sentence for NZ honeymoon kidnappers

Two men who kidnapped and robbed a Dutch couple honeymooning in New Zealand and raped the woman, were sentenced to lengthy prison terms on Thursday, report New Zealand media.

Keith Anthony McEwan (30) was sentenced to imprisonment with a maximum 10-year non-parole period, with the judge applying a special measure that could mean McEwan never leaves prison.
Co-offender Christopher Mana Manuel (27) was imprisoned for nine years, with a non-parole period of six years.
The two pleaded guilty to charges of kidnapping and aggravated robbery during the attack on the Dutch tourists in November last year.
