Second man charged over murder of former Canberra man Corey Power

Police have charged a second man over the murder of former Canberran Corey Power in 2013.

Mr Power, 33, was found bashed in a quiet street in the NSW town of Young in August 2013, less than a week after he moved back there from Canberra to be closer to his four year old daughter. 

A 22-year-old man was on Tuesday charged with murder, accessory before the fact to murder, steal motor vehicle and aggravated break, enter and steal.

He was refused bail and will appear at Wagga Wagga Local Court on Thursday. 

Mr Power was found by a woman out walking just after 5am on August 29, unconscious and bashed beyond recognition.

He later died in hospital.

Strike Force Bumble, led by detectives from Cootamundra Local Area Command, and assisted by detectives from Wagga Wagga and The Hume local area commands and the Homicide Squad, was established to investigate Mr Power's death.

Earlier this month, 19-year-old Owen Fuller was also charged over Corey Power's murder.
