Man charged with murder

A 70-year-old man has been charged with murder after a body was found at a suburban east Auckland address.

Police said "something violent" had happened at the Glen Innes where the male victim's body was found late last night.

Officers were still working to identify the victim and no further details would be released until next of kin had been notified, which could take more than 24 hours.

Police were carrying out a scene examination at the address today.

They were were also working to establish the movements of the victim and the alleged offender before the incident.

Detective Senior Sergeant Aaron Pascoe said it was clear "something violent" had occurred at the address.

"However we are not looking for anyone else in relation to this incident," he said.

The alleged offender was due to appear in Auckland District Court next week.
