Cannons Creek death
A Cannons Creek father was last week stabbed to death in his home.
Mura Dean Tagatauli, 37, was found with stab wounds to his leg at his home in Bedford St, shortly before 11pm on Wednesday.
He died in Wellington Hospital the following day.
Four children, including a baby a few months old were present when police arrived, and a 28-year-old woman was arrested at the house shortly afterwards.
She appeared in Porirua District Court on Thursday charged with murder. Her name was suppressed, and she was remanded on bail, to appear in the High Court at Wellington later this month.
The house at the centre of the police investigation sits directly opposite Glenview primary school and is understood to be a Mongrel Mob-associated address.
The investigation into Tagatauli’s death is the sixth homicide case in the Wellington region this summer. The region normally averages about four a year.
