NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 15/08/2016

A south Auckland man has been charged with murder following a death at an Otara home.

Gary Moore, 57, was found dead in his house following an alleged fight in the early hours of July 31.

Teina Taunga, 29, was charged with assault following the incident, but police on Monday announced they had upgraded the charge to murder.

Taunga appeared at the Manukau District Court on Monday morning where his bail was extended and no plea entered.

The case will now be heard in the High Court at Auckland in September.
