Rotorua Police have charged a person in relation to the death of a Bay of Plenty man.

A 26-year-old man has been charged with manslaughter and will appear in the Rotorua District Court today.

Neville Butler’s body was found dead at a property on Steeles Lane in Rotorua in September 2017.

Police had spoken with several people at the property back in September, but didn’t make any arrests at the time.
