Update from NZ Police: In a media release earlier today, Police advised that a homicide victim had been found at a residential property in Liverpool Street, Whanganui.
This was incorrect – the victim was located at a residential property on the corner of Victoria Avenue and Ingestre Street.
Police apologise for the error and any confusion caused.
A homicide investigation has been launched after a woman was found dead at a Whanganui address last night.
The victim, aged 41, was found at a residential property in Liverpool Street, after Police received information from a concerned person.
A 50-year-old man has been charged with her murder and will appear in Whanganui District Court today.
The victim was known to the man and nobody else is being sought in relation to her death.
