Police have charged a 31-year-old unemployed Whanganui man with the murder of veteran journalist Derek Round.
The man was charged earlier this morning and is due to appear in the Whanganui District Court later today.
Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Kirby said the charge was a "significant step" but the inquiry into Mr Round's death was continuing.
"Work is also ongoing to establish whether more than one person was involved in Derek's death.
"Today's development is the result of a big effort by the investigation team and I would like to thank the public and media who have assisted us.
"However we still need your help and the team remains focused on the missing bits of the puzzle and finding answers for Derek's grieving family."
Mr Kirby said police were still looking to locate missing clothing thought to have been worn by the person who killed Mr Round.
They were also seeking more information about the movements of Mr Round's distinctive blue Jaguar car between Wednesday evening and Thursday morning.
