Red Fox Tavern murder accused in court

Chris Bush was shot dead in 1987.

A man accused of a 30 year old murder has made his first appearance in court.

Chris Bush was shot dead while drinking with staff at the Red Fox Tavern in Maramarua in 1987.

Last week, police arrested two people - both aged in their 50s - and charged them with murder and aggravated robberty.

A 58-year-old, whose name is suppressed, appeared at the Manukau District Court this afternoon.

Judge Sainsbury granted him interim name suppression and he was remanded until later this month to appear alongside his co-accused at the High Court in Auckland.
