The man accused of murdering Nicola Jean Fleming in Invercargill earlier this month can now be named.

He is Invercargill man David Jackson Mahia, 30, unemployed.

Mahia appeared in the Invercargill District Court this morning before Judge Gary MacAskill facing a charge of murder and another of sexually violating Ms Fleming, 38, by unlawful sexual connection on February 9.

Judge MacAskill remanded Mahia in custody to June 5 for a post committal conference.

Lawyer Bill Dawkins did not apply for name suppression to continue and made no bail application.

Mahia was charged after Ms Fleming was found dead in her room at the Haven accommodation hostel in Tyne St on February 9.
