Name suppression has lifted on a 17-year-old charged with the murder of Cyrus Alexis Alupis, who was stabbed to death in Greymouth last month.
The youth is Lewis Floyd McKenzie, who had been granted interim suppression of name when he was remanded in custody at the Greymouth District Court on July 30.
Justice Cameron Mander lifted the order at a call-over in the High Court at Christchurch today, and remanded McKenzie in custody to Tuesday for a bail application which will also be held in Christchurch.
Mr Alupis, a 41-year-old West Coast man, was found stabbed on Cowper Street, Greymouth, about 2am on July 30. He was taken to Grey Base Hospital but died shortly afterwards.
