NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 6/05/2016

Wellington police have charged a woman with murder following the discovery of another woman's body in the eastern suburb of Strathmore Park.

The 37-year-old's body was discovered on Friday evening.

Another 37-year-old was arrested and appeared in Wellington District Court charged with murder.

"Staff are still working to notify the family of the deceased female, so a name release will be delayed until this has occurred," police said in a statement.

Officers will remain at the Tannadyce St house over the weekend examining the scene.

Police earlier said it appeared to be an isolated incident and the community should not be concerned about safety.
