An 11th person has been charged with kidnapping a woman who escaped bound and gagged from a moving car in Papatoetoe in March.

Jindarat Prutsiriporn died in Middlemore Hospital after falling onto the road.

Ten people have already appeared in court and pleaded not guilty to various charges relating to her death and kidnapping.

Police say they arrested a 29-year-old man this morning and he will appear in the Manukau District Court today.
