Woman charged with murder over Mt Eden death

An 18-year-old woman has been charged with murder after a man died in the Auckland suburb of Mt Eden.

Detective Senior Sergeant Scott Armstrong said the body of a 21-year-old man was found at a Dominion Rd address after police were called at 2.25am today.

The woman is being held in custody and will appear in Auckland District Court on Monday.

Police were not seeking anyone else in relation to the incident.

The man's body was found inside a block of six rundown flats, which were owned by Housing New Zealand.

One police officer was guarding the property today while a scene examination took place. Four more officers were working at the address.

A neighbour said police had been called to the flats several times in recent months.

Three weeks ago, police had raided the property, in what he believed was a drugs-related incident.

Another neighbour said a couple in the block of flats had recently been having loud, "screaming" arguments, though it had been quiet last night.
