The fifth person charged in relation with the killing of Featherston man Glen Jones can now be named.

She is Tariana Hineteanaurangi Jones, 32, of Masterton.

Jones was granted temporary name suppression by Judge Bruce Davidson at an appearance at Masterton District Court last week.

The suppression lapsed at 4pm today.

She joins four others already named in relation to the death of the supermarket worker, whose body was found at his Fitzherbert St flat in the early hours of January 12.

They are: Matthew McKinney, 28, Hayden Ranson, 27, Kristofer Jones, 23, and Toni Miller, 22.

Tariana Jones and Miller were released on bail last week, while the remaining three are being held in custody.

All are charged with entering Jones' home with a wooden bat and an axe handle.

The group are yet to enter pleas to the charges and will reappear in court next month.
