A woman charged with luring a 28-year-old man to a western Sydney car park where he was fatally beaten has been granted bail

Loubna Kawtharani, 27, was arrested on Thursday morning and is one of three people now charged with murdering Ross Houllis.

She faced Bankstown Local Court on Friday and was forced to hand over her passport as a bail condition.

Mr Houllis died in hospital after being savagely beaten and robbed by two men at a shopping centre in Wakeley, police say.

He had turned up at the shopping centre on February 14 to meet a buyer for items he had advertised for sale on the internet.

Sami Hamdach, 27, and Abdul Karaali, 26, allegedly demanded cash from Mr Houllis before beating him to the ground and dragging him through the Bulls Road car park.

The pair were in February charged with murdering Mr Houllis and remain before the courts.

Both Hamdach and Karaali have been denied bail.

Kawtharani lured Mr Houllis to the shopping centre so Hamdach and Karaali could assault and rob him, detectives allege.

Police have previously described the attack as horrific.

"The level of violence, it was cold, it was calculating, it was very deliberate," Superintendent Brett McFadden said in February.

"It's something that's just unacceptable for our society."

Kawtharani is scheduled to next appear in court on April 15.
