Man charged with murder after body found in home

A MAN has been charged with murder after allegedly killing a man more than 30 years his senior at a house in Adelaide.

Police and paramedics were called to a home on Urban Avenue, in the suburb of Paradise, just before 5.30am on Friday.

SA Police confirmed officers arrived to find the body of a 65-year-old man inside the home.


Despite the best efforts of paramedics, the victim could not be revived and was pronounced dead at the scene.

It’s not known how the man died, or whether he was found with any visible injuries.

A 35-year-old man from the address was arrested and taken into custody.

In a statement a short time ago, SA Police confirmed the 35-year-old man would be charged with murder.

“The people involved are known to each other,” police said in the statement.

“Police will refuse bail and the arrested man is expected to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court at the earliest opportunity.”

The relationship between the two men is not known.
