The Crown has finished presenting its evidence at the High Court trial of six men accused of killing a child in Wanganui in a driveby shooting last year.

Jhia Te Tua, aged two, was shot while inside her parent's home at night on 5 May last year.

Final Crown witnesses included an undercover officer placed in a cell at the Wanganui police station to pose as a drug dealer who had just been arrested.

The defence is expected to begin presenting its evidence on Monday.

The Court is dealing with administrative matters on Friday.
