A man has been arrested for the murder of Auckland businesswoman Elizabeth Zhong.
Zhong, 55, was found dead in the boot of her car outside her Sunnyhills home late last year.
A 47-year-old man was arrested by police on Friday and has been charged with murder.
He is due to appear in the Manukau District Court later today.
Counties Manukau detective inspector Shaun Vickers said police have worked diligently to bring justice for Zhong.
"We know the community expected Police to get on with the investigation and bring about justice for Elizabeth.
"From the outset of this investigation, the team of detectives working on Operation Attina have worked diligently to bring about a result in this case.
"We hope this will bring some reassurance to the community and Elizabeth's family," Vickers said.
Police initially issued an appeal for sightings of Zhong because they believed she was missing.
On November 28, 2020, her car was found around the corner from her house. Police didn't look in the boot of the car until several hours later when they found her body. Items from the house had been placed over her to conceal her.
The early investigation involved police scouring CCTV footage from the street to establish her movements the day beforehand.
Zhong was a businesswoman in the film and wine industries but was bankrupted soon before her death.
A neighbour described her as a "lovely lady".
