Two months after a man allegedly subjected a 28-year-old Warrnambool woman to a “horrific” assault from which she died 10 days later, he has been charged with her murder.
The woman was found in a unit on Ocean Grove, in Warrnambool’s east, on the morning of November 27 with head and spinal injuries.
She died at the Royal Melbourne Hospital on December 4.
Warrnambool man Paul McDonough, 37, was initially charged with intentionally causing serious injury and recklessly causing serious injury.
Homicide detectives on Friday upgraded the charge to one count of murder, Victoria Police said on Monday.
Mr McDonough was remanded to appear at Warrnambool Magistrates’ Court for a committal mention on March 27.
