Man charged with murder after woman found dead at Forbes

A man is set to face a NSW court charged with murder after a call from a member of the public led to his arrest and the discovery of a woman's body.

Police were called to Union Street near the centre of Forbes just after 6am on Friday, where a 28-year-old man was arrested and taken to the police station for questioning.

A short time later, police found the body of a 59-year-old woman known to the man at an Underwood Street home.

The man has been refused bail and is set to face Parkes Bail Court on Saturday charged with murder.
