Police have released the name of the woman found dead at a West Auckland house on Tuesday night.
She was 46-year-old Susan Ann Marriner. Her body was discovered after officers were called to an address in Henderson, shortly after 11pm.
A 30-year-old man has appeared in the Waitakere District Court charged with her murder. He has been remanded in custody and is due to reappear in court on 24 June.
Police spokesperson Kevin Loughlin says a scene examination is continuing at the house and a post-mortem will be carried out.
