A man has been charged with murder after a body was found in Whanganui on Wednesday night.

The 41-year-old female victim was found at a house on the corner of Victoria Ave and Ingestre St after police received information from a "concerned person," said a police spokesperson.

A 50-year-old man has been charged with murder and will appear in Whanganui District Court on Thursday.

The victim was known to the man and nobody else is being looked for in relation to the death.

Police earlier said the body was found on Liverpool St, and apologise for any confusion caused.
