The sole carer of a woman has been charged with murder after her emaciated body was found in Sydney’s south-west, police say.

Paramedics went to a Greenacre home on Friday morning to respond to a medical episode.

They alerted police after they found what authorities described as ‘the body of a severely-emaciated 60-year-old woman’.

Officers arrived and arrested an 82-year-old man, the woman’s sole carer, taking him to Bankstown Police Station where they charged him with murder.

The Greenacre man was held in custody and expected to face Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday.

It’s understood the man and the woman were not family members.
