Update: 7:35PM The 13-year-old boy charged with murdering a west Auckland dairy owner will remain in custody.

The boy, who cannot be named because of his age, made his first appearance at Waitakere Youth Court on Wednesday following the death of  Arun Kumar at the Railside Dairy in Henderson on Tuesday morning.

He is also charged with assaulting 57-year-old Mr Kumar with intent to rob, along with a 12-year-old boy.

Both boys applied for bail but the applications were turned down by Judge Lisa Tremewan.

They will remain in the custody of Child, Youth and Family before their next court appearance.

The 13-year-old will next appear in the High Court in Auckland in July and the 12-year-old will appear in Waitakere Youth Court in July.

Mr Kumar, a former Nadi resident, died in his dairy after being stabbed in the neck, in the presence of his wife.

Police have been examining CCTV footage and are asking any witnesses to come forward.
