A 63-year-old man has appeared in the Waitakere District Court on Tuesday morning charged with the murder of an Auckland woman. 

Police and emergency services rushed to Westgate Rd in the suburb of Massey around 8:30am on Monday, after reports of an assault. 

The injured woman died at the scene, despite attempts from several members of the public to give her CPR. 

Police say they apprehended a man a short distance from the scene who is assisting with their enquiries. 

He was later charged with murder.

The man has been remanded in custody and will reappear in the High Court at Auckland on in mid-August.
