A 37 year old man has been arrested at a St Helens Park home and charged with the murder of Jamie Phillips last year.
The accused was taken to Campbelltown Police Station yesterday where he was charged with murder.
He was refused bail to appear at Campbelltown Local Court today (Friday, March 8).
Police will allege in court that Mr Phillips was stabbed at a home at Rosemeadow and his body was later dumped at a vacant lot.
About 1pm on Thursday, October 25 last year, officers from Campbelltown City Police Area Command were called to Englorie Park Drive, Rosemeadow, after the body of a man was found in the vacant lot.
He had been stabbed.
The man was formally identified as 46-year-old Campbelltown man, Jamie Phillips.
Local detectives, with the assistance of the State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad, established Strike Force Hardey to investigate the circumstances surrounding his death.
In late January the police issued a new appeal to the public for information about the Phillips’ murder.
They also released CCTV footage of Mr Phillips the afternoon before he was murdered.
Following extensive inquiries, strike force investigators, with the assistance of South West Metropolitan Region Enforcement Squad, executed a search warrant at a home at St Helens Park just after 11.30am yesterday (Thursday, March 7).
Police say investigations under Strike Force Hardey are continuing.
