Auckland mental health patient charged with murder

News from NZ Police
Police have named the 36-year-old man who was found dead at his home in Balmoral Road, Auckland yesterday.

A 38 year-old mental health patient who lived at the same address will appear in the Auckland District Court charged with the murder of Dean Andrew Clark.

The accused, who was considered stable after a range of assessments by health authorities, was arrested yesterday an hour after police were called.

The victim had called the landlord a day before his death, saying he was concerned about his flatmate’s ‘odd’ behaviour and wanted him out of the house.

A scene examination is expected to continue for some days.
