A 17-year-old boy has been charged with murder after the death of a girl of the same age near a remote Aboriginal community in Western Australia’s Goldfields region.
Police say around midday (WST) on Sunday, the girl was badly injured in an assault involving what’s believed to have been a metal bar.
Police found the girl dead in bushland near Cosmo Newberry a short time later.
The alleged offender is currently in Royal Perth Hospital after being injured in an assault that occurred after the girl’s death – an incident that police are also investigating.
The boy will appear in Perth Children’s Court later on Wednesday.
