Fourth man charged over murder

An inmate has become the fourth man to be charged for his alleged role in the murder of a South Australian man who is suspected to have been attacked with a tomahawk.

The 33-year-old, who has been jailed at the Mount Gambier Prison for other offences, is the third person to be charged with murdering Oliver Todd.

Mr Todd, from Murray Bridge, was reported missing on December 11 in 2019.

The 47-year-old’s body was found by police later that day at Jervois near Tailem Bend, about 15km southeast of Murray Bridge.

According to SA Police, there were signs of a physical struggle at the address.

It is believed Mr Todd was attacked in his home with a small axe, his body was then wrapped in a wool bale bag and driven to Jervois in a red Nissan Navara utility with a SA registration of S307AMK.

Following an investigation, two Murray Bridge men, aged 30 and 49, were charged with murder on December 12, 2019.

On March 26 last year, a 41-year-old Murray Bridge man was charged with impeding an investigation and two counts of providing a false statement to police.

CCTV footage of the Nissan Navara was released at that time.

The inmate, who was charged on Wednesday, was remanded after fronting the Mount Gambier Magistrates Court later in the afternoon.

He is due to appear in Adelaide Magistrates Court on Thursday with the two men who were previously charged with murder.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online.
