Teenager faces murder charge

A teenage boy has been charged with murder following an investigation into the death of an elderly man at Killarney Vale earlier this year.

About 9.55am on Thursday, February 10, emergency services responded to reports the body of a man had been located inside a house on Pendant Pde.

Officers from Tuggerah Lakes Police District attended and found a 77-year-old man with critical injuries. He died at the scene.

A crime scene was established and forensically examined by specialist police.

In March this year, detectives from Tuggerah Lakes Police District formed Strike Force Apollo and commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Following extensive inquiries, a 16-year-old boy attended Wyong Police Station about 11.30am on Friday, June 3, and was charged with murder.

The teen was refused bail until his appearance in the Children’s Court.
