A 52-year-old Crib Point man, Brendan Mcdowall, and a 34-year-old Hastings man, Shane Heiberg, were both charged with murder and faced Melbourne Magistrates’ today.
Neither man applied for bail and both were remanded until their next court appearance on 3 November.
Homicide Squad detectives charged 36-year-old Natalie Dalton with murder on Thursday.
She appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Friday 27 October today after being charged with murdering 39-year-old Jade Goodwin. She did not apply for bail and was scheduled to reappear for a committal mention on March 23.
The latest two have been charged nearly a week after the discovery of a body behind a building on a 11.7ha property on Dandenong-Hastings Road in Tyabb about 9pm on Sunday night. The body was buried in a shallow grave.
Forensics police laid down yellow markers pointing to possible evidence found at the scene, including a black glove in the driveway. A blue tent was set up at the rear, covering the body.
Up to 40 SES volunteers were called in by Homicide Squad detectives to line search the Tyabb property for clues before the body was removed on Monday evening.
On Tuesday, the dead man was identified as Hastings resident Jade Goodwin. Mr Goodwin, who was known to police, was a father of two daughters.
