A man has been charged following the discovery of a woman’s body in Hampton Park on Saturday 7 July.

Police were called to the Redwood Avenue address just before midday where the 45-year-old man was arrested at the scene.

Homicide Squad detectives have charged the man with one count of murder.

He has been remanded in custody and is expected to appear in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Monday 9 July.

The woman had been identified and the cause of death is yet to be determined.

All parties involved are believed to be known to each other and police are not looking for anyone else in relation to the incident at this stage.

Domestic Violence Victoria (DVR) said attitudes needed to be challenged that condone discriminatory attitudes towards women.

“The best evidence on the likelihood of perpetration of domestic violence is attitudes towards women and attitudes towards violence,” said DVR chief executive Fiona McCormack said.

The Australian Domestic and Family Violence Death Review report showed 80 per cent of the 152 intimate partner homicides in Australia between 2010-2014 were committed by a man killing his current or former partner.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
