TWO peo­ple have been ar­rested and charged in Syd­ney in con­nec­tion with the fa­tal shoot­ing of a man on the Morn­ing­ton Penin­sula.

The vic­tim, Joshua Dip­i­etro, 31, was found in a car with a gun­shot wound to his head on East­bourne Road in Rose­bud on Septem­ber 3 last year.

He was taken to hos­pi­tal but died the fol­low­ing night.

A 25-year-old man and a 31year-old woman were ar­rested at Smithfield in Syd­ney’s west on Mon­day night.

The man has been charged with mur­der. The woman faces charges of be­ing an ac­ces­sory to mur­der.

An ap­pli­ca­tion will be made to ex­tra­dite the pair, who were set to ap­pear be­fore Syd­ney’s Fair­field Mag­is­trates’ Court yes­ter­day af­ter­noon.

The charges fol­low the ar­rest of an­other man in Rose­bud last year.

He was charged with one count of mur­der and three counts of con­duct en­dan­ger­ing life on Septem­ber 5.

His ar­rest fol­lowed an overnight siege at a house in the sea­side town.

Mr Dip­i­etro, of Glen Waver­ley, was am­bushed and shot in his friend’s car af­ter he had just left a Fa­ther’s Day lunch on the Penin­sula.
