Robert Trebeck was charged with the murder on Saturday and will face Proserpine Magistrates Court today.

The 33-year-old Bluewater man was charged with the March 16 murder after he was arrested in Bowen, North Queensland, just after 8am on Saturday.

Mr Trebeck is a farm labourer, pig hunter and bull rider.

Ms Jeffery was killed as she walked home in Goondiwindi in the early hours of March 16 and her body was found partially clothed on the banks of the Macintyre River about 500m away from her home.

Detectives released CCTV footage of Ms Jeffery walking with a man before she was killed, and it has been reported that the man was Mr Trebeck.

He had previously admitted being friends with Ms Jeffrey, but denied the relationship had gone any further with the mother-of-three. Mr Trebeck was working as a pig hunter at the time of the murder and had been living in the NSW/Queensland border town with his fiancee.
