The police announced the name of a man found dead in the suburb of Mt Eden in Auckland on Saturday, May 18th.
He is named as 21-year-old Brendon Hamilton.
An 18-year-old woman appeared in a court charged with his murder after his body was discovered on a property at Dominion Road in the early hours of Saturday morning.
She was supported yesterday by family members in the Auckland District Court and her appearance was postponed to have time to speak with a lawyer.
There were no bail applications, which means they will be held in custody until the next appearance at the High Court in Auckland next month.
The court ordered not to publish the identity of a woman.
Sometimes she wiped tears while standing in the dock.
The family in the courtroom shouted support and "loved you" while the woman left the courtroom.
