The 27-year-old West Auckland man is facing two charges of murder in relation to the deaths in the Auckland suburb of Glendene yesterday afternoon.

In a statement, Detective Inspector John Sutton said they were not seeking anyone else in relation to the deaths and they believed those involved were known to each other.

Police inquiries were continuing and those in the area would see an increased police presence until tomorrow, he said.

Police have now yet named the victims and say post mortems will be carried out in the coming days.
