The man charged with murdering 21-year-old Zenith Campbell has been granted bail.

Campbell, who preferred to be known as Zena, was in February found dead in a car in Aro Valley, Wellington, after attending a party the night before.

Paddy Jonathan Woods, 30, was today bailed to the Wairarapa area while he awaits trial for allegedly strangling Campbell.

He is not to go past the Rimutaka hills or Pahiatua.


Woods, a Lower Hutt man, pleaded not guilty to Campbell's murder at an appearance in the High Court at Wellington last week.

Today he appeared again for a bail application, which Justice Susan Thomas granted.

The case is expected to go to trial for three weeks in either November or February 2019.
