A 29-year-old woman has been charged with the murder of a patched Mongrel Mob member in Lower Hutt.

Sean Verma, 30, died after receiving a stab wound to his chest, despite rescuers trying to save him in the stairwell of his Petone flat last night. He leaves behind an 18-month-old son.

Police said the woman was this evening charged with his murder.

Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Thornton said investigators were continuing to piece together the events leading up to the death and urged any witnesses to speak to police.

"At this stage, we are not seeking anyone else in relation to his death", says Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Thornton.

The woman will appear in the Lower Hutt District Court tomorrow.

A scene examination is continuing at the East Street address, Thornton said.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Hutt Valley Police on (04) 560 2600 or anonymously on the Crimestoppers hotline 0800 555 111.
