The woman who died after being struck by a car in Wellington on Tuesday, sparking a homicide investigation, has been named.
Delia Grace Williams, 55, was hit by the vehicle in the suburb of Northland on Tuesday night.
A 58-year-old man appeared in the Wellington District Court yesterday charged with assault, using a car as a blunt weapon and drink driving.
The man has been remanded in custody and will reappear in court on Monday.
Police said they were still building a picture of what happened the night Ms Williams died, and further charges could follow.
They have asked anyone who knew Ms Williams to contact them.
