A MAN charged with the murder of a woman, believed to have been his friend, in Melbourne’s outer east has briefly faced court.
Jian Li, 48, was charged and appeared at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court this afternoon after the grisly discovery of the body of Dong Mei Sun at Narre Warren South this morning.
The Cranbourne man allegedly murdered her late last night at the Narre Warren South address where neither of them are believed to have lived.
The court heard Li required a Mandarin interpreter, but none were available.
He was remanded in custody to reappear in court for a filing hearing tomorrow, when an interpreter would be available.
Magistrate Gerard Lethbridge said an order for a forensic sample would be made tomorrow.
Neighbour Kirsty Ottem heard a commotion.

Li appeared calm and sat quietly, dressed in a large white t-shirt, until he was prompted by a corrections officer to stand and exit the court after the brief appearance.
Police were called to a property in Harold Keys Drive about 10.30pm last night after the female victim was found with upper-body injuries.
She died at the scene.
Nearby residents said an Asian family lived there.
Next door neighbour Maggie Linares said she regularly heard constant fighting at the house, including screams and “squeals” between a man and woman yesterday morning.

“It was the husband and wife who were at it — really bad at each other,” she said.
“Just the tone of voice and the way they were speaking was very aggressive and constant yelling.”
Geeta Devi, also nearby, said she had also heard fights there.
“Always — like somebody screaming and yelling — usually a lady, “ she said.
“We never thought something like this is going to happen in our street.

“It’s shocking — it’s a quiet street, “ she said.
“You know most of the people — you see young kids around.
“They seem like quiet people.
“It’s sad, it’s scary.”

Comment by Pete Dowe

Sadly, the time may have come for a Domestic Violence Toll similar to the Road Toll to highlight this tragic and unacceptable community safety problem.

"EACH week a woman is killed by her partner or ex-partner." 

Ken Lay, Chief Commissioner, Victoria Police

Herald Sun 17.10.13



Similarly, Mental Health/ Wellbeing Expert, Professor Patrick McGorry has previously advocated a Suicide Toll to highlight that issue and as part of suicide prevention.
