Two more people have faced court charged with the murder of a man in Melbourne.

Ricky Rowlands, 46, died last month in hospital after being found badly injured at Parkville following a CBD altercation, police said at the time.

Jacinda Brown, 39, and 38-year-old Dale Miller separately appeared in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Thursday charged with Mr Rowlands' murder.

The court was told three other people had previously been charged, including 40-year-old Benjamin McCartin and 34-year-old Candice Harper.

Brown's legal aid lawyer said the woman was withdrawing from heroin in custody and at risk of self-harm.

The court was also told Miller took methadone but hadn't been given any since his arrest.

The duo were remanded in custody to reappear on February 15 for a committal mention alongside their co-accused.
