Name suppression has lapsed for two people charged earlier this week in connection with the death of a missing Kapiti Coast man.
Susan Laura Bragger, 44, from Paraparaumu and Sean Michael Hawke, 50, of Tauranga appeared in the Porirua District Court on Tuesday.
They were charged with being a party to the grievous bodily harm of Raymond Piper, 23, who was last seen on 15 May.
Ainsley Anderson, 51, also appeared in the Porirua District Court on Tuesday, charged with being a party to murder.
He, Ms Bragger and Mr Hawke were all remanded in custody to reappear in court next month.
Meanwhile, police continue to search for Mr Piper's body.
