A funeral for Guy Christian Scollay, found murdered in his Christchurch home, will be held tomorrow.

Police were called to the Edgeware Rd property early last Sunday where they arrested his wife Lucille Sarah Scollay, 44, who has been charged with his murder.

She made a brief appearance in the Christchurch District Court on Monday and was remanded to appear on February 25.

A death notice for 48-year-old said he was the "dearly loved husband of Lulu, and loving father and friend of his son, Louis".

The Press understands Scollay, who was unemployed, was previously a musician, playing guitar, bass or vocals for a Christchurch band called Gas.

Both the families of Lucille and Guy Scollay issued a statement through police requesting privacy.

"We are dealing with the tragic loss of Guy, and both families are united in supporting Lucille and Louis."
