Watch: Ihaka Stokes murder accused Troy Taylor 'would've gone to prison' to cover for the mum

The man accused of murdering Christchurch infant Ihaka Stokes says he would've gone to prison to cover for the boy's mother. Troy Kevin Taylor, 23, says he lied to detectives the night 14-month-old Ihaka died to protect his then-partner and Ihaka's mother, Mikala Stokes. The de facto stepfather says a heavily pregnant Stokes inflicted the boy's 59 fatal injuries at the couple's Truman Rd home on July 3, 2015 while he was out getting a tattoo.
