A man has been charged with murdering a young Tamworth mother whose body was found alongside her unharmed baby girl after allegedly breaking into her home seven weeks ago.
The body of 22-year-old Teah Luckwell was discovered beside her one-year-old daughter in the Tamworth unit on the night of March 28, police say.
Emergency services were alerted about 9.40pm by a neighbour, police said at the time, adding that Ms Luckwell’s daughter was taken to hospital for a check and has since been looked after by her grandmother.
On Tuesday police charged a 27-year-old man at a Sydney prison with murder.
The man was arrested, along with two other men, a week after Ms Luckwell’s body was discovered, in relation to a series of break-ins in the local area.
