Ex-partner charged over grisly bathtub murder
Police have charged Lithgow woman Jenoa Sutton's ex-partner Rodney Dempsey over her grisly 2012 murder.
The 27-year-old's body was found battered in the bathtub of her Macauley Street home by her sister.
Emergency services were called to the scene but she was declared dead upon arrival.
A forensic examination later revealed she died of a head injury and drowning.
A team of detectives launched an investigation into the death and arrested 50-year-old Rodney Dempsey at a Katoomba business yesterday.
Police say the man was Sutton's ex-partner at the time of the murder. He was previously known to police.
Dempsey, who is from Bowenfals, was taken to Katoomba Police Station and charged with murder.
He was refused bail to appear at Penrith Local Court today.
