Woman's body found in Northland
Police are treating the death of a woman in Northland as a homicide.
The woman, a 26-year-old believed to be a mother of one, was killed after an alleged assault at a Te Hana property, north of Wellsford.
Emergency services arrived in the scene about 4am after being told a woman there had suffered a fatal trauma.
Her body will remain at the home until police have completed a scene examination.
A 40-year-old man will appear in the North Shore District Court tomorrow in relation to the incident, but it is not clear what charges he will face.
