Man charged with Johnsonville murder

Related

UPDATED 9:03am: The man found at the scene of a homicide investigation has been charged with murder.

Police were called to an address in Kentwood Ave near Johnsonville, following a screaming one-one-one call around 1am yesterday.

A 38-year-old woman was found dead at the scene along with a 46-year-old man who was known to the deceased.

Police spokesman Nick Bohm says the man found at the scene has been charged with murder and aggravated burglary.

He says the alleged offender may also face another charge, but that will be made clearer when he appears in the Wellington District Court today.

The name of the woman is expected to be released later today after family members from Australia arrived in Wellington earlier this morning.

Detective Senior Sergeant Tim Leitch says police are focusing their attention on the property where the woman's body was discovered as well as the man's home and his car.
