A 23-year-old has been charged with murder over the fatal stabbing of an Auckland man last week.

The 24-year-old man was found stabbed to death at an address in Half Moon Bay on Friday.

Later, a former school friend crashed his car into a house in Pakuranga and was found trapped and suffering stab wounds.

A Pakuranga man has been charged with murder and appeared before Manukau District Court today.

Police still want to hear from anyone with information about the movements of a two-door 1996 Mitsubishi Mirage between 9.30pm and 11pm on Friday in the Half Moon Bay/Pakuranga area.
