Name suppression has been lifted for one of the five people charged in connection with the death of a Featherston man.

Glen Jones, 40, was found with severe head injuries at his home in Fitzherbert Street about 12.15am on 12 January and died in Wellington hospital later that day.

Name suppression granted to 32-year-old Tariana Jones lapsed on Friday afternoon.

Ms Jones and four others, whose names have already been made public, have been charged with aggravated burglary and possession of an axe handle and a wooden bat.

All will reappear in court on 7 February.
