A man has been charged with the murder of a woman after her body was found in Melbourne’s southeast.
The 20-year-old Springvale man was arrested on Monday afternoon in the CBD and charged.
It comes after a 41-year-old Springvale woman was found dead inside her Glendale Road home on Thursday.
Victoria Police say the two were known to each other and they aren’t looking for anyone else.
A homicide investigation was launched on Thursday after the woman was discovered about 12.10pm.
Distraught family members who gathered outside the home last week told The Age the woman was a mother-of-five.
Neighbours said they did not know her, and it is believed she was new to the area.
