Name suppression has been lifted for a woman who allegedly murdered 36-year-old Carly Stewart in West Auckland.
Stewart died at the scene of a Te Atatu south residence where she was fatally stabbed.
36-year-old Anna Eiao Browne appeared in the Auckland High Court today charged with the murder of Stewart and faces a maximum penalty of life-imprisonment.
Browne’s case is set to be reviewed in February with a trial date set for August next year.
Anna Browne’s appearance follows a series of two unrelated fatal stabbings in West Auckland two weeks ago.
Suppressions are still in place but with the removal of name suppression we can reveal 24-year-old Michael Tristan Ford appeared in the Auckland High Court today.
He is charged with the murder of 42-year-old Ronald Karipa who was fatally stabbed five kilometres away from the scene of where Stewart died.
A trial date has been set for September.
