A 46-year-old woman has been charged with murder after an Eltham man died after allegedly being stabbed on Thursday.

He was Rex Karaitiana, 50, of Eltham.

Mr Karaitiana was taken to Taranaki Base Hospital on Thursday with suspected stab wounds and died early on Friday, police say.

The woman has been remanded in custody and has interim name suppression and police say they're not currently seeking anyone else.
