Name suppression continues for Strathmore murder accused

11:55 am on 23 May 2016

Name suppression will continue for a woman accused of murdering another woman in the Wellington suburb of Strathmore earlier this month.

The dead woman's name was also suppressed.

The accused woman was not present at an administrative hearing in the High Court in Wellington, but Justice Simon France said she was suffering mental health issues, and publication of her name would be a risk.

The case will be back before the High Court early next month.
