A 60 year old man has been formally charged over the death of a 38 year old woman on the weekend.
A woman was found dead at the Bill Sewell complex on Chapman Rd on Saturday morning.
Police have stated that they believe both the victim and the suspect knew each other.
The man was charged with aggravated assault occasioning bodily harm and breaching a violence restraining order.
The death occurred less than two days after Geraldton Police put out a public plea for victims of domestic violence to report it. "If you are a victim of domestic violence, the chance you avoid reporting it is a chance missed to break the cycle of violence."
