The 34 year old man will face court in Port Pirie today charged with the murder of Martin Craig Meffert in 2005.

He was never reported missing, but in 2013 police located his remains at a property in Packer St, Terowie during a visit to the address about an unrelated matter.

Investigators also believe more than $136,000 was stolen from Mr Meffert’s bank accounts following his death.

Police have today interviewed two people, a man and a woman, in connection with that alleged offending, however they have not been charged with any offences at this time.
