The man is due to appear in the Whanganui District Court tomorrow.

Police said the investigation into Ms McKay-Patea's death was continuing and still wanted to hear from anyone who had information that could assist them.

Earlier in October, police launched a homicide inquiry when a woman's body was found in Lee Street in the Whanganui suburb of Castlecliff.
