Pair due in court over Doyleston death

Two people are due in court over the death of Marcus Tucker, found dead on a road in a Canterbury town.

Police say Mr Tucker was brutally assaulted before his burnt body was found near Lake Ellesmere at Doyleston last week.

A 51-year-old man has been charged with his murder, and a 31-year-old woman has been charged with conspiring to assault and accessory after the fact.

The arrests led police to conduct a scene examination at a Bishopdale address on Sunday.

Both accused are due to appear in Christchurch District Court today.
