West Australian police have charged a 28-year-old man with
the murder of convicted drug trafficker Stephen Cookson whose
head was found in a bag on Rottnest Island.
Detectives arrested, questioned and released a man on
Wednesday night, after a forensic team descended on a
property near Mandurah as they continued the search for the
rest of Cookson's body.
Last night they charged the 28-year-old man from Guildford
with one count of murder.
He will appear in the Perth Magistrates Court today.
