A man has been charged with murder after the body of an 18-year-old woman was found in the NSW town of Maitland.
The 20-year-old was spoken to by police outside the home in Galway Crescent, Metford, about 1.30am on Saturday before officers located the woman.
She's yet to be formally identified but police believe the pair are known to each other.
Detectives told the Newcastle News the pair are a couple and will allege he strangled her.
The man, who has been refused bail, will appear in Newcastle Local Court on Sunday.
