A man accused of murdering Wellington woman Sarwan Lata has been found fit to stand trial.

The 47-year-old, whose name is suppressed, made a brief appearance in the High Court in Wellington on Wednesday.

Justice Ronald Young remanded him in custody until April.

Ms Lata's body was found in her home in the northern Wellington suburb of Woodridge in November last year.
