A homicide investigation has been launched after a woman was found dead at a Whanganui address, police say.

The 41-year-old woman's body was found at a residential property "after police received information from a concerned person".

Police have confirmed the body was found in a flat on the corner of Victoria Ave and Ingestre St, not at a residential property on Liverpool St as they'd previously announced.

A 50-year-old man has been charged with murder and will appear in Whanganui District Court today, police said in a statement.

The victim was known to the man and nobody else is being sought in relation to her death.
