A second teenager has been charged with murder in relation to the death of south Auckland man Tamati Tupe.

Mr Tupe's body was found on Hillside Rd in the Auckland suburb of Mt Wellington in late September.

Police said a 17-year-old who was initially charged with assault had now been charged with Mr Tupe's murder.

He is to appear in the Manukau Youth Court today.

Last week a 15-year-old male was also charged with murder and appeared in court.
