Two men have been charged following the death of a 33-year-old Whanganui woman, which is believed to be drug related.

Sanchia Wilson, who had just moved from Hamilton, became unconscious while socialising at a house last Wednesday.

Police say she was taken to Whanganui Hospital in a critical condition, then transferred to Wellington Hospital, where she died on Sunday afternoon.

They say an investigation has resulted in the arrest of two men who have been charged with supplying a Class B drug.

The men, aged 57 and 35, were due to appear in Whanganui District Court on Monday afternoon.
