Three people have been arrested and charged with manslaughter after a man died following an incident outside an Upper Hutt bar in 2019.
Kaimana Paul, 39, died during an incident outside the Glasshouse Bar on Main Street around 6pm on September 4, 2019.
On Tuesday, a spokesperson for police confirmed enquiries have led to the arrest of three locals.
Two men, aged 29 and 75, and a 23-year-old woman have been charged with manslaughter and are expected to appear in Hutt Valley District Court on Tuesday.
Detective Senior Sergeant Nick Pritchard said his thoughts are with Paul's family and friends following the arrests.
"We're also mindful of the impact this will have on the alleged offenders' families – it's a difficult time for many people in our community."
