A Wellington man has today pleaded guilty to manslaughter following a person's death in 2009.

Tawera Wichman, now 24, appeared in the High Court at Wellington this morning.

He pleaded guilty to committing manslaughter in Upper Hutt between March 4, 2009 and September 8, 2009.

Heavy suppressions in place prevent media reporting further details of the case.

Wichman was remanded on bail for sentencing next month.
