Man charged with murder

A 28-year-old Hawker man has briefly faced the ACT Magistrates Court charged over the alleged murder of a woman in Canberra's north this week.

Aleksander Vojneski did not apply for bail, and did not enter pleas when he faced court this morning.

He had been charged with one count of murder and is due to reappear in the ACT Magistrates Court next month.

Magistrate Peter Dingwall formally refused bail.

It’s understood Vojneski was in a relationship with the alleged victim, Paula Conlon.

Previously, police have said the 30-year-old woman was allegedly killed sometime on Wednesday, her body found in a room in her Macgregor home about 4pm that day.

Vojneski appeared in court dressed in a blue forensic suit and was supported in court by a woman believed to be his mother.
