Police have charged a 31-year-old, who is a local, with murder in relation to the death of a 44-year-old man in Christchurch. 

He is due to appear in the Christchurch District Court tomorrow.

Earlier today police launched a homicide investigation after a man was found seriously injured at an address in Edgeware. 

Police were called to the address at around 2:47 am.

The man was transferred to Christchurch Hospital but died shortly after.

The name of the deceased man will not be released until Police have notified all of his next of kin.

As the matter is now before the courts, there will be no further comment.
