Teen charged with murder of mum found in bin

A 17-year-old boy has been charged over the murder of a young mother who was taken to hospital in a wheelie bin.

Police will allege the teen critically injured 18-year-old Britney Watson, then put her body in a bin and wheeled it to Newman Hospital, in the town of Newman in Western Australia's Pilbara region, early yesterday morning.

"While there are no charges at present I can talk about, we're in a full-scale investigation," Mr Dawson told ABC radio on Thursday.

"It's a real tragedy in the sense that the community, the woman is known ... and there are a couple of kids involved."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
