Update on Rotorua homicide of 30 January 2019

1 min read

A 56-year-old male will appear in the Rotorua District Court today charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, following the death of 69-year-old Trevor Rikihana on 30 January 2019.

The man was located in Napier and arrested yesterday evening.

Enquiries into the death of Mr Rikihana are continuing and it is likely that more serious charges will be laid in due course.

As this matter is now before the courts, no further comment will be made.
