Man charged with killing wheelchair bound woman who drowned in pond

After months of investigations, police have today charged a man with the murder of a wheelchair bound woman, found dead in a pond in Adelaide’s south parklands.

“Detectives from the South Australia Police Major Crime Investigation Branch investigating the drowning death of Helen Dansie earlier this year have today arrested a 68-year-old man,” police said in a statement.

The 67-year-old’s body and wheelchair were recovered from the pond in Veale Gardens in April, with her death declared a major crime.
