A man charged with murder over a fatal stabbing in west Auckland's Glendene has been allowed to keep his name secret.

Ronald Clayton Karipa, 42, died from stab wounds suffered in a fight at a house on Hepburn Road on Saturday.

The 23-year-old man accused of killing Mr Karipa appeared in the Waitakere District Court on Monday where he was granted interim name suppression to allow police to continue their investigation into the case without interruption.

During the hearing, a group of men dressed stared down the accused from the public gallery, one standing up and swearing as his friends held him back.

The accused - wearing a boiler suit - muttered words across the court during the proceeding, the men yelling at him to stay quiet, before he was led away.

He has been remanded in custody and will appear in the High Court in November.

Earlier on Monday, a woman charged with murdering 36-year-old Carly Stewart in the nearby suburb of Te Atatu on Saturday appeared in court and was also given interim name suppression.
