Mr Turei was killed in a crash on State Highway 35, opposite the Raukokere Marae, near Te Kaha, on November 26.

He had just left a family wedding when a vehicle struck his Harley Davidson from behind.

Police upgraded the investigation to a murder inquiry in the days after the crash and a 33-year-old Te Kaha man was arrested for being an accessory after the fact of murder on May 16.

On Wednesday, Detective Inspector Lew Warner said a 32-year-old Te Kaha man was arrested on the same charge and would appear in Rotorua District Court that day.

Further enquiries were ongoing, Det Insp Warner said.
