After worried neighbours hadn’t seen Judy for a few days, they called for a welfare check at 10:30am on Saturday morning, where Judy, who fled Hungary after World War II, was found dead by police.
Judy’s son Thomas Bednar, 53, was arrested for the murder on Monday, while police analyse “significant amounts” of DNA evidence.
It has been alleged that Judy was murdered some time between May 12 and May 15.
Following his arrest, Thomas Bednar did not appear during a filing hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Monday evening, and has been remanded until his next court appearance in October.
This is the first time Mr Bednar has been in custody, and he did not apply for bail.
Prosecutors have been given extra time to look into CCTV footage, as well as analyse the “significant amounts of DNA evidence” and devices found at the scene.
