Homicide Squad detectives have charged a man with murder over the 2013 death of Barry Gray in Rye.
72-year-old Barry Gray was found deceased by police at his property in Parson Street on Friday 17 May about 9.40am.
Detectives investigating the case successfully applied to both the Victorian and New South Wales Attorney General’s Department’s for the 23-year-old man’s movement into Victorian jurisdiction, from a NSW correctional facility, to face the charge.
John Woodruff appeared before the NSW Local Court in August where it was determined he would serve his current sentence, in relation to other matters, in Victoria.
He is currently in a correctional facility in Victoria.
He will appear in the Melbourne Magistrates tomorrow in relation to the murder charge.
