A man has been charged after police found a woman’s body inside a western Sydney apartment, after earlier failing to locate the source of a domestic dispute.
Police received an anonymous phone call about an alleged domestic dispute at a Liverpool apartment block about 11.45pm on Friday.
Officers arrived at the unit block about 3am on Saturday, but were not able to find the apartment where the incident had occurred.
A 28-year-old man has been charged with domestic violence charges after the body of a woman, 34, was found in a Liverpool apartment on Saturday night
Inquiries into who had made the phone call continued throughout Saturday, police said.
About 8pm Saturday, police were called back to the Liverpool unit block, where they found the body of a 34-year-old woman.
A 28-year-old man was arrested at the scene and charged with domestic violence offences, including stalk/intimidate intending fear of physical etc harm, contravene prohibition/restriction in AVO and destroy or damage property.
He appeared at Parramatta Bail Court on Sunday where he was refused bail.
