A 46-year-old man who appeared at Auckland District Court today charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm has been remanded in custody at the Mason Clinic for a psychiatric assessment.

The charges were in relation to the death of another man.

The names of the charged man and the deceased are currently suppressed.

Police expect to have completed a scene examination where the death took place later today.


They said they hoped to be able to formally identify the victim some time in the next few days.

The charged man is set to reappear in court via audio-visual link later this month.
