A Hamilton woman who allegedly shot and killed her life-long friend following a prolonged drinking session can now be named.

Tiffani Jade Sutcliffe, 23, has been charged with the manslaughter of Rhys Gordon Williamson whose body was discovered at a Seddon Road property in Frankton last month.

The 39-year-old was shot in the stomach and died at the scene on May 30, police said at the time.

Sutcliffe has also been charged with the unlawful possession of a firearm.

She entered a plea of not guilty to both charges on Tuesday and was remanded in custody to reappear in the Hamilton High Court on July 11.
