A man has been charged with murder after the fatal stabbing of a woman in Dunedin on Monday night.
Moana Anahera Marie Aranui, 21, died after being struck many times, with a wound to the heart proving fatal.
The charged man, aged 50, is recovering in Dunedin Hospital from stab wounds said by police to be self-inflicted.
He will appear before a Justice of the Peace in a makeshift courtroom at the hospital at 11am Thursday.
Arrest after stabbing outside hotel
Meanwhile, a gang associate has been arrested in connection with the death of a Central Hawke's Bay contractor.
Mark McCutcheon, 34, was fatally stabbed last Friday night after intervening in a dispute outside the Sandford Arms hotel in the township of Ongaonga.
Hastings CIB head Dave de Lange says Mr McCutcheon was trying to stop a patched gang member from beating up a woman.
He says a Waipukurau man, 22, has been charged with assaulting Mr McCutcheon and further charges are likely.
The man has appeared in the Hastings District Court and been remanded in custody until a further court appearance next week.
A patched gang member, 26, has been charged with assaulting a female.
