Kylee Guy, the widow of murdered Feilding farmer Scott Guy, has sent a letter to the Government pleading for a cumulative sentence for Ewen Macdonald.
Macdonald is expected to be sentenced this Friday for six crimes, including two against the Guy family including a farm cottage arson and vandalism to their new family home.
Ms Guy calls Macdonald a “very dangerous, vindictive man and an extreme danger to our society and people”.
She says he must pay for the “hurt, pain and suffering he has caused”.
5th September 2012
Please from the bottom of my heart consider this letter. I have been living in this horrible nightmare for over two years and it can't keep going on. Ewen MacDonald is a very dangerous, vindictive man and an extreme danger to our society and people. He needs to pay for all of his individual and separate crimes and the hurt, pain and suffering he has caused; not only to myself, my husband and our children but to numerous other people within New Zealand. I am deeply afraid that he will re-offend as he has delivered unthinkable vengeful and spiteful attacks. I am now alone and I must protect my children and for this I need a sentence that reflects appropriate justice. If the offender is granted a concurrent sentence it will not reflect the suffering he has caused to my family, neighbours and the community and will mean that he is able to escape the true gravity of his actions.
I love New Zealand, I want it to remain my home, but with what has happened and what I fear could happen, I will live my life in fear for the safety of Hunter, Drover and myself. Once MacDonald is released my only choice to provide safety for my family is to move from New Zealand, away from the support of family and friends; how is this fair?
How much more pain do I and many others need to suffer as victims; as a country this is not right. New Zealand is regarded as a safe country that stands up for its people and we need to maintain this belief.
Please look at this within your heart and help us.
Thankyou so much for your time
Kylee, Hunter, Drover and always our beautiful Scotty

I feel so sorry for this family. Ewen did it, our very clever POLICE could produce enough evidence to the dury. NZ police need a good shake up they are a joke, doing people for Drink Driving when they are asleep in there car because they dont want to drive to someone getting away with murder and what about the twin babies No one pays.
NZ POLICE A JOKE.....

Unfortunately no matter how bad a victim feels, justice will always be determined by the evidence. Because of this right to remain silent right, its made him look like a fool, but yet he's getting what he wants. Whatever that is? Personally, i think because hes hated him for a long time, he would of had a long time to organize and articulate his crime. The last peice of the puzzle would be to remain silent i guess?

could ewans detective brother have influenced the policing of this case? the detective work seemed shabby and to have court case moved to wellington where his brother lives, the bad seach disissions by the police on the farm.if you watch the last few seconds of when he was sentenced he looked over to his brother and gave him the old you were right bro look..shifty as!! hang in there kylee you will meet someone really nice and live happy ever after..

A Victim Impact Statement is usually written to be presented to the Sentencing Judge and people both directly affected/or disadvantaged by the criminal acts of the person on trial are both encouraged to make such statements and to have help to put them together, from Police or others. If they so desire they are free to make their statements public.

Mate you need to understand the sentencing process before you make a remark / statement, this is a victim impact statement that every victim has the right to present prior to sentencing, and yes it does have substance when sentencing
Remember their is an old saying, sit and say nothing and be thought the fool than to open you mouth and remove all doubt.

There is something inherently wrong with this whole sage. I firmly believe there is more to it than meets the eye, and maybe there are some people in this that are not what they seem to be. Very very odd indeed

Funny, I thought the letter was addressed to the Attorney General, not the whole of New Zealand to read.

I think if a murderer doesn't get arrested for more than 20 years, then we are living in a joke of a country. This explains why crime has increased within the last few years and everything has gone upside down. Not just you Kylee, but we are also considering leaving NZ. It's becoming a joke.

someone is wrongfully informing this lady that the government is allowed to interfere with the sentencing in a court. While the crown lawyer can ask for a sentence it is up to the judge. Therefore this must be a publicity stunt.
