POLICE have charged a 31-year-old man with murdering Ian John Wilson, 48, who was found dead on the steps of Beaufort Street’s Metro Church on Sunday at 8am.
Police say a weapon was used and the attack happened around 9pm on Saturday night.
They don’t believe the accused man knew Mr Wilson, and there didn’t appear to be any altercation between them beforehand.
They haven’t revealed how Mr Wilson died but the ABC reports a post-mortem revealed he had suffered “significant injuries”.
The accused was due to appear at Perth magistrates court on Thursday July 14 and police are asking anyone with info to contact them through Crime Stoppers.
