The ex-partner of 61-year-old Stockton shooting victim Stacey Klimovitch’s daughter has been extradited from the ACT to NSW to face murder charges in a Queanbeyan court today.
Last Friday, 46-year-old Stuart Daniel Campbell was arrested at gunpoint and charged with the grandmother’s alleged murder.
He is the second man charged by Strike Force Backhouse detectives with murder following investigations into the fatal shooting of the 61-year-old in Stockton earlier this year.
Police say that just after 8pm on Wednesday, June 9, emergency services were called to a home on Queen Street following reports of a shooting.
“A 61-year-old woman answered her front door before being shot,” NSW Police said in a statement today.
“She died at the scene and was later identified as Stacey Klimovitch.
“Officers from Newcastle City Police District established Strike Force Backhouse to investigate the circumstances surrounding Stacey’s murder.”
Last week, detectives arrested a 29-year-old man at Honeysuckle. He was charged over his alleged involvement in the shooting and remains before the courts.
With assistance from ACT Policing, officers arrested 46-year-old Campbell on an NSW warrant at a home in Chisholm, Canberra, about 6.45pm last Friday. He was taken to a local police station where the NSW warrant was executed.
Yesterday, strike force detectives applied for, and were granted, his extradition to NSW. He was escorted to Queanbeyan Police Station and charged with murder.
The man was refused bail and is due to appear at Queanbeyan Local Court today.
