A man is due to face court today, charged with the murder of a woman whose body was found inside a home in Queensland yesterday.
Police made the grim discovery just after 4.00pm, after being called to a house in Nerangba to conduct a welfare check.
Sadly, upon a search of the residence, officers found a 45-year-old woman deceased inside.

According to local media at the scene, the woman suffered “horrific injuries”.
A crime scene was quickly established a short time later and investigations led police to a nearby home where a 50-year-old man was arrested.
The man, who is known to the woman, has since been charged with one count of murder (domestic violence offence).
He will appear in Pine Rivers Magistrates Court today.
