Police are still looking for the weapon used during a street fight in west Auckland which left a man dead.
Connor Morris, 26, died on his way to hospital. He was the long-time partner of Millie Elder-Holmes, daughter of the late broadcaster Sir Paul Holmes.
Police said two people arrested at the scene on Sunday morning have appeared in court for outstanding fines and breaching community work and are no longer in custody.
Reports that a machete was used in the attack are speculation, police said, and the exact type of weapon is yet to be determined.
A white Honda car at the scene has been taken away for forensic tests.
