A 53-year-old man from Orelia will appear in court today, charged with the murder of 70-year-old Richard Andrews.
The arrest follows the discovery of human remains in bush south of Perth yesterday.
The man was also charged with one count of interfering with a corpse and will appear in Rockingham Magistrates Court today.
Mr Andrews, of Calista, had been missing for more than four weeks before yesterday’s discovery. Neighbours said he left for Albany in mid-August and had not been seen since.
