We are saddened to report the 44th death of a woman in Australia in 2016 by known or assumed male killers.
Anne Rogers, was found by a relative in Milperra on 13 September. Police officers attended the scene where she died of her injuries.
The victim’s husband Warren Rogers, also in his 60s, was found in a critical condition.
The police are not looking for anyone else in relation to Ms Roger’s death, which was originally reported as a potential murder-suicide. Warren Rogers has since been charged with his wife’s murder.
We send our deepest condolences to Ms Roger’s friends and family.
