A 25-year-old woman is now facing a murder charge in relation to a fatal stabbing in Wellington.

A 67-year-old man was left dead and four others were injured in the attack in Johnsonville earlier this month.

At a hearing in Wellington District Court today, four fresh charges were laid against the woman, including one of murder and three of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

They are in addition to four earlier charges of assault with a weapon.

The woman's name suppression has been extended and her attendance at court was excused.
