A third person has been arrested today in connection with the death of a man in Lower Hutt at the beginning of the month.
Police have today arrested and charged a 38-year-old woman with attempting to pervert the course of justice.
They say the woman was known to the dead man, 39-year-old Adam Watkins, and other occupants at the address in question in Taita.
She was due to appear in court this afternoon.
A 19-year-old woman has already appeared in the Hutt Valley District Court charged with murder and a 40-year-old man also appeared in court charged with being an accessory after the fact.
