Man Charged with Murder Following Body Discovery in Scone

A man has now been charged with murder after a body was found at Scone yesterday.

A 20-year-old man handed himself into police around 6:30am leading officers to the body of a 41-year-old man in a home on Parker Street.

Police established a crime scene while the younger man was taken to the John Hunter Hospital with minor lacerations to his fingers.

He’s been refused bail and will front Muswellbrook Local Court today.
