A 21-year-old man has been arrested over the alleged murder of a woman in the Adelaide CBD.
The man was arrested at a ‘halfway house’ where he was living less than 24 hours after the discovery of the woman’s body, which had been concealed in a bedroom.

Police were called to Sturt Street just before 6pm on Monday where they found Kim Chau, 39, dead.
Chau’s last confirmed sighting was 11.30pm last Thursday, and police say she was most likely killed within the next 24 hours.
She is believed to have been stabbed to death.
Chau’s body was found inside the bedroom of a home home belonging to senior public servants Lois Boswell and Don Frater, known to be close friends of the victim, who reported her missing.
The body remained there for a number of days before it was found.

Police say Chau was most likely living there and the couple is not under suspicion.
“She has lived a blameless life and she’s come to be the victim of a horrible crime,” Detective Superintendent Des Bray said.
Bray said the woman’s BMW had just been found behind Australia’s Pizza House, a short distance away on West Terrace.
