A second teenager has been charged with murder in relation to
the death of south Auckland man Tamati Tupe.
Mr Tupe's body was found on Hillside Rd in the Auckland
suburb of Mt Wellington in late September.
Police said a 17-year-old who was initially charged with
assault had now been charged with Mr Tupe's murder.
He is to appear in the Manukau Youth Court today.
Last week a 15-year-old male was also charged with murder and
appeared in court.
