A man has been charged over the alleged murder of a two-year-old girl 30 years ago. 

Homicide squad detectives arrested a 70-year-old man at rural property at Porters Retreat – about 42km south of Oberon, in NSW’s Central Tablelands – about 9am on Tuesday. 

At the same time, a 59-year-old woman was arrested at a home in at Palmerston North City, in New Zealand, as detectives apply to have her extradited to Australia.    

A 70-year-old man has been arrested at a Porters Retreat property (pictured) over the alleged murder of a little girl in 1987 

The arrests come after Strike Force Betrand was launched in October 2019 after police received information relating to the alleged murder of a two-year-old girl near Oberon in 1987. 

Detectives were told the toddler was allegedly fatally assaulted by a woman known to her around July of that year at a rural property at Porters Retreat.

A man then allegedly helped the woman dispose of the child’s remains.
