Nearly three years after roadworker George Taiaroa was shot dead, a man charged with his murder has appeared in court.

A 45-year-old Taranaki man was granted name suppression when he appeared in the New Plymouth District Court today charged with murdering 67-year-old Mr Taiaroa at a road construction site in Atiamuri, south of Tokoroa, in March 2013.

The accused was arrested in Stratford yesterday.

He is due to reappear in the High Court on December 4.
