    Name suppression for the man charged with murdering a Christchurch woman, as she walked home from work on Saturday afternoon

    Name suppression for the man charged with murdering a Christchurch woman, as she walked home from work on Saturday afternoon


    The 37 year-old appeared in Christchurch District Court via video link, facing a single charge of murder.

    Police say the man did not know his victim...Laisa Maraia Waka ...who was in her 50s.

    She leaves a partner and children.

    Judge Mark Callaghan granted interim name suppression and called for a report to assess the man's mental fitness to stand trial.
