The circumstances of the Docklands death have not yet been released, but police say they are treating it as suspicious and believe it to be linked to the earlier death.

A 22-year-old Huntingdale man was arrested in Preston and charged with murder, robbery and theft after authorities discovered the body of the 31-year-old woman in a Latrobe Street apartment on Tuesday. He has been remanded in custody.

Police say they believe the man was known to both deceased women and that at this stage they are not looking for anyone else in relation to the deaths.

The investigation is ongoing and police want to speak to anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity around the Docklands apartment between December 27 and 29, or has CCTV or dash-cam footage of the area.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online.
