Police have charged a fourth person in relation to the death of a man in Upper Hutt in 2019.

Kaimana Paul, 39, died during an incident outside the Glasshouse Bar on Main Street about 6pm on Wednesday, 4 September 2019.

Two men and a woman were charged with manslaughter in relation to the incident in October last year.

A 62-year-old man has now also been charged with manslaughter, and is due to appear in the Hutt Valley District Court today.

Inspector Nick Pritchard says Police have now thoroughy investigated this matter and are not expecting further charges will be brought.

"We hope the conclusion of this investigation brings about some sense of closure to the family and friends of Mr Paul.

"We also want to thank the members of the community who have continued to assist us with this enquiry over the past three years."

As the matter is before the courts, Police will not comment further.
