Pair in court over Milton stabbing

Two men have appeared in Dunedin District Court this morning after a stabbing in Milton.

A 29-year-old shearer faced one charge of assault with a knife and two charges of threatening to kill following the incident on Saturday.

The other man, a 31-year-old, faced three charges of assault using a piece of wood and two charges of threatening to kill. 

Both men entered no plea and were remanded in custody.

They were granted interim name suppression until they reappear in Dunedin District Court tomorrow.
