Three men allegedly shot during an aggravated burglary in Kawhia are now facing more charges.

The trio were injured and their associate Faalili Moleli Fauatea was shot dead during an incident at a Harbour Rd, Hauturu, property during the early hours of June 6.

They have since all been charged with aggravated burglary and were due to appear in the Hamilton District Court again today.

However, their appearance was remanded until later this month, but four more charges were laid by police.
