Backpacker Grace Millane’s killer named as identity suppression orders are lifted | #tinder | #pof

The man who murdered British backpacker Grace Millane in New Zealand after meeting her on a dating app has also been convicted of two other violent offences against women.

Jesse Shane Kempson, who New Zealand’s Supreme Court ruled can now be named, was convicted of murdering Millane by strangling her in a hotel in Auckland after meeting her via Tinder on December 1, 2018 – the day before her 22nd birthday.

The 28-year-old has since been convicted of further violent offences in two recent trials, including raping another woman he met on Tinder.

Kempson, who opted for the trials in October and November to be heard before a judge, was convicted of rape last month.

He was also convicted of threatening to kill, two charges of assault with a weapon, three assaults and two counts of sexual violation by unlawful sexual connection at a trial in October, court documents state.

Kempson was allowed to keep his name secret through the court proceedings as his defence counsel argued naming him would prevent him getting a fair trial.
