In a statement released by police, they said a 33-year-old Bluewater man has been charged with murder and is scheduled to appear before the Proserpine Magistrates Court on Monday, June 30.

EARLIER today, detectives made a breakthrough in the murder case of Goondiwindi mother Alexis Jeffery when they arrested a man in North Queensland this morning.

Farm labourer Robert Trebeck, 33, was arrested in Bowen just after 8am.

The pig hunter and bull rider appeared dazed as he was led from an unmarked car this morning.

He briefly turned to The Sunday Mail and spoke a few words before he was led inside the police station.

Ms Jeffery, 24, was killed as she walked home in Goondiwindi on March 16.

Her body was found partially clothed on the banks of the Macintyre River about 500m away from her home.

Detectives released CCTV footage of Ms Jeffery walking down the city’s main thoroughfare with a man before she was killed.

Mr Trebeck was later revealed as the man walking down the street with her.

He is seen exiting a car and walking towards the mother-of three on Marshall St before holding her

hand and walking out of shot with her about 2.15am.

Identified as a “person if interest” in the case, he left the small town on the border of Queensland and New South Wales after the police investigation began.

Last time he spoke to The Sunday Mail he denied kissing the mother or being intimate with her.

“No I didn’t (kiss her),” Mr Trebeck said.

“Why would I be interested in her when I’ve got me own girlfriend.

“If I had any involvement, the police would lock me up, would they not?”

“All locals want to do is put it on someone, that’s all I’m going to say.”

Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.
