John Henry Harris, known as John Boy, was taken to the St John base in Kensington by friends in October last year and died soon afterwards.

Police at the time said the man, who was 37, was a patched member of the Tribesman Motorcycle Club.

A 41-year-old man is facing a number of charges, including murder. A 19-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman have each been charged with accessory after the fact to murder.

All three are due to appear in the Whangarei District Court today.
