Two teenagers have now been charged with the murder of gay man Roman Skorek in a Rotorua park.

Newstalk ZB reports the previous assault charges of the boys, aged 14 and 15, have been withdrawn and upgraded to murder.

Roman Skorek was found dead in Kuirau Park last month.

Two others, Simon Herewini and Rawiri Samuel, have already been charged with his murder.

The four accused will next appear in court on March 6.
