Murder charge

1 min read

Auckland City Police have arrested a 38 year-old man who will appear in the Auckland District Court tomorrow charged with murder after the body of a 36 year-old man was found at a Balmoral Rd property in the suburb of Balmoral today.

Next of kin of the deceased are in the process of being notified of his death.

A scene examination got underway today and is expected to continue for some days. It's unclear how well the two men knew each other but both were residents at the address, one more recently than the other.

No further information can be released tonight.
