Former fugitive Ricardo Barbaro has been charged with murder over the death of a Melbourne mother.
The 33-year-old was charged over the death of Ellie Price, who was found dead in her South Melbourne home on May 4.
It comes after a week-long manhunt to find Barbaro ended after a stand-off in Sydney.
The 26-year-old woman’s body was in her apartment for days before it was discovered.
Police believe Barbaro was in an on-again, off-again relationship with the young mother.
He is due to face Melbourne Magistrates Court on May 16.
