A 19-year-old woman will appear in the Christchurch District Court today charged with murdering a man in Ashburton.

A 23-year-old man was found with critical injuries at a McDonald Street house on Friday night but died soon after emergency services arrived.

They said the investigation was continuing, but they were not seeking anyone else in relation to the death.
