Three men have been charged with the murder of a Tauranga resident killed at his home last year.

Police say Gary Kimura was seriously assaulted on 5 October and died in Tauranga Hospital on 16 November.

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Turner says three unemployed men - two from Tauranga and one from Auckland - will appear in court on Tuesday jointly charged with murder.

He says another man also faces a charge of accessory after the fact to wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

That man will also appear in court on Tuesday.
