A Sydney woman killed in Penrith was a mother of two in a new relationship.
A Man used to be arrested after she was found dead in a unit in western Sydney on Monday afternoon.
Domestic violence journalist and campaigner Sherele Moody identified the woman as 28-year-old Dayna Isaac.
“Dayna was a mother of two daughters,” Ms Moody said.
‘She had known Man was suspected of killing her for some time, but their friendship only turned into a relationship in recent months.”
Her burnt-out car was found in nearby bushland and is under investigation.
The police were informed by a relative of the murdered woman.
The NSW Police tactical operations unit arrested a 32 year old Man Tuesday morning at a house three miles away in Cranebrook.
“We are aware that there was a relationship between the two,” acting superintendent Carlene Mahoney told reporters Tuesday.
“It was a long relationship as a friendship and has become more intimate in recent months and that’s as far as we know.”
The Man is detained at Penrith Police Station.
Supt Mahoney added that he had recorded previous domestic violence incidents.
