Charlotte Carter 18:38, July 13 2018 The mother of slain Auckland man Javed Mills has voiced concerns about the decision to release her son's killer on parole, fearing he is a danger to the community. James Cooper, now 30, had been denied parole in 2017 and 2016 but was released this month on conditions including that he submit to electronic monitoring and not contact Mills' family.

Javed's mother, Lichelle Mills said the parole board's decision was very disappointing for her and her family.
