A man has been charged with murder and breaching a domestic violence order following the death of a woman on the Gold Coast.
Queensland Police discovered Kelly Wilkinson’s burned body in the backyard of an Arundel home at 6.40am on Tuesday while conducting a welfare check after neighbours reported raised voices coming from the home.
A crime scene was declared before a man with serious burn injuries, including on his hands and in his internal airway, was allegedly located at a nearby address.
The man is believed to have been in a relationship with Wilkinson at some point.
Gold Coast detectives charged a 34-year-old New Beith man with murder and breaching a domestic violence order later on Tuesday.
