A man accused of murder faced a Kalgoorlie court yesterday after being charged over the weekend.
Codie William Davidson, 25, appeared in the Kalgoorlie Magistrate’s Court after a body was found 25km north-west of the city.
The name of the victim, Ryan Andrew Penglase, 32, was revealed when Magistrate Tom Hall read the charge to Mr Davidson yesterday.
Mr Davidson, dressed in a blue paper forensics jumpsuit during the short hearing, said he understood the charge.
He did not enter a plea and a bail application was not made by defence counsel Will Reid.
The crime is alleged to have occurred on August 31 at a Lamington address.
