Double homicide case in Auckland

6:02 pm on 19 December 2010

Police investigating the deaths of two people are wrapping up their forensic examination of a house in the Auckland suburb of Pakuranga.

Police say a girl, aged 14, reported a serious domestic argument at a house in Walworth Avenue just after midnight on Saturday.

The bodies of a woman, 26, and a man, 36, were found there.

Police say they are not looking for anyone else.

Post mortems will be held on Monday.

Neighbours spoken to by Radio New Zealand say the couple had moved into the house in the last six months, and have two small children.

Forensic experts have been at the house on Sunday, and the property remains cordoned off.
