South Guildford woman charged with mother’s murder

POLICE have charged a South Guildford woman with the murder of her 76-year-old mother.

The additional charge follows an earlier charge of interfering with a corpse to hinder an inquiry.

The accused woman’s 21-year-old daughter contacted police after she noticed a smell when she returned home after some time away.

Detectives found a human skull in the backyard of the Nyinda Entrance property, the home of the three women.

Further investigations in March uncovered more badly decomposed human remains “partially buried or hidden”.

The accused woman (55) appeared in Midland Magistrates Court on Friday, April 22.

She did not apply for bail and was remanded to appear in the Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court on Wednesday, April 27.
