Post-mortem into west Auckland death

12:00 pm on 8 November 2014

A post-mortem on a man killed in west Auckland will begin today.

A homicide investigation is continuing after police found the 50-year-old dead at a house at Wairere Road in Waitakere on Thursday night.

Police said they would be back at the house this morning to continue their scene examination.

The victim's body was removed last night.

A 45-year-old man was arrested in Whanganui yesterday and charged with assaulting a woman and assault with intent to injure.

He was granted interim name suppression and remanded in custody until next week, when he will re-appear at the Waitakere District Court.

Police said they had not decided yet whether to lay further charges.
