Man charged with murder after woman found dead in suburban NSW home

A man has been charged with murder after the body of a woman was discovered inside a home near Nowra in NSW.

A family member made the grim discovery at a house on Comerong Island Road at Numbaa around 11.20am yesterday after the woman couldn’t be contacted.

Emergency crews rushed to the scene a short time later, but there was little they could do, with the 51-year-old woman pronounced deceased.


“The scene was quite confronting,” South Coast PD Crime Manager, Detective Inspector Scott Nelson said.

A crime scene was established at the home, with a 37-year-old man arrested nearby a short time later.

He was taken to Nowra Police Station and charged with murder.

The man was refused bail to appear in Wollongong Bail Court today.

A report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.
