Can­nons Creek death

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

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.
