A young man has been charged with the murder of a Dunedin woman.

The 20-year-old was arrested and charged by local police following a week-long investigation of the discovery of Karin Ann Ross' body at a Strathallan Street address in Dunedin on December 2.

The victim and her alleged killer knew one another, police say.

It caps a worrying fortnight for locals with two assaults – one on a cyclist on Saturday and another on a jogger at Ross Creek on Monday – following the homicide in quick succession.

The man will appear in Dunedin District Court tomorrow.
