A man has been extradited from the Northern Territory on a charge of murder relating to the death of another man on the state’s North Coast last month.
About 4.30pm on Thursday 21 June 2012, police from Richmond Local Area Command attended a residence in River Street, Broadwater, after 54-year-old Edward James Kelly was located deceased.
