Melbourne Man Charged Over Chilling Backyard Murder

A man has been charged with murder after a body was found in a backyard in Melbourne's southwest.

The 41-year-old accused man was arrested at the Mount Eagle Way incident after police were called just before 9pm on Sunday, where the 49-year-old man's body was found.

The Wyndham Vale man has been remanded to appear in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Tuesday morning.

The Nine Network reported a man knocked on the door of a neighbouring house and said "I've just bashed your next door neighbour to death".

The resident then raised the alarm.

Another man, 43, who had assisted police with the investigation was released without charge on Monday.
