ST CLAIR Robert Jack Becha­lany will face court next month charged with the mur­der of Luke Brown­ing at St Clair on April 14. About 12.20pm, a trail of blood led emer­gency ser­vices to a va­cant house where Mr Brown­ing, 27, was found un­con­scious. Paramedics moved him from be­side the house on Wills Glen in St Clair and worked to re­vive him on the drive­way but he died at the scene. The blood trail which led to Mr Brown­ing is be­lieved to have stretched as far as 150m through a nearby park. In­ves­ti­ga­tors ar­rested Mr Becha­lany at Syd­ney Air­port at 5.50am the next day. St Marys po­lice have formed Strike Force Neu­mayer to in­ves­ti­gate the in­ci­dent. They are be­ing as­sisted by State Crime Com­mand’s Homi­cide Squad. Mr Becha­lany will next face Pen­rith Court on July 31.
