A woman has been charged with murder following the fatal stabbing in the west Auckland suburb of Te Atatu.

Police confirmed on Sunday they had laid the charge against the 36-year-old after the victim, also 36, was stabbed at a house in School Road on Saturday afternoon.

She will appear in Waitakere District Court on Monday.

Police say a post-mortem examination is being carried out on the victim and they won't comment further while the case is before the courts.

Media reports say there had been a gathering at the house during Saturday.

The victim, a mother of two, had been there to have her nails and lashes done at a "girl' day", Fairfax reports.
