Police have charged an eighth person with the bodies-in-the-box murders of a mother-of-three and her brother-in-law.

The 28-year-old man from Auckland was charged over the gruesome murders in Logan after being extradited to Queensland from New Zealand.

He has been charged with two counts of murder and will appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Friday morning.

The bodies of Cory Breton, 28, and Iuliana Triscaru, 31, were found in a large metal toolbox in a dam in Kingston in February 2016.

Police found the metal tool box containing the duo’s heavily decomposed remains submerged behind a Coates Hire equipment-leasing shop on February 11, 2016.

The couple were believed to have been abducted before their deaths – with Mr Breton last seen on January 21 and his sister-in-law three days later at a Marsden address.

Their bodies were so badly decomposed forensic investigators were not able to determine a cause of death.
