Police have named the 41-year-old woman killed during an incident at Ongaroto near Atiamuri earlier this week.

She was Queenie Selina Thompson.

A 44-year-old man has been charged with murder and will appear in the Rotorua High Court next month.

Police said in a statement that their thoughts were with Queenie's family following her tragic death.

"I can reassure the community that we are rigorously investigating the circumstances of her death," said Detective Senior Sergeant Matt Cranshaw of the Taupo Area CIB.
