The brother of a woman found dead inside her western Sydney home will remain in custody after being charged with her murder.
Lucas Delaney, 30, had his matter briefly mentioned in Parramatta Local Court on Wednesday after being arrested outside Cumberland Hospital at Westmead on Tuesday.
He has been charged with murder (domestic violence) over the death of his sister Gabriella Delaney, a 20-year-old visual arts student.
Ms Delaney's body was discovered on Monday inside the Cambridge Park house she shared with her brother.
Police were called to the townhouse after her Western Australia-based family raised concerns about her welfare. They had not heard from her for five days.
Delaney was arrested after presenting himself to the hospital some time after her death.
His lawyer Shelby Van Ooran did not apply for bail when the case was heard in court.
Delaney also chose not to appear via audio-visual link and the matter will next be heard at Penrith Local Court on August 7.
