The Melbourne man accused of raping and murdering Eurydice Dixon will face three additional charges, the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court has been told.

19-year-old Jaymes Todd has been charged by police with the additional offences of attempted rape and two counts of touching in a sexual manner.

He was originally charged only with rape and murder.

The court has also heard that Todd’s defence lawyer has received pathology and biology reports, and will be given more time to consider the new charges.

The body of Eurydice Dixon was found by a passer-by in a soccer field at Princes Park on June 13. It’s alleged she was attacked by Todd as she walked home from a comedy gig in the early hours of the morning.

Her murder sparked a conversation about women’s safety in public places, and thousands of Australians gathered around the country for candlelight vigils in memory of the up and coming comedian.

In Melbourne, her memorial in Princes Park was vandalised by “comedian” Andrew Nolch, which triggered another conversation about what the hell is wrong with so many men that they think vandalising the memorial of a recently murdered young woman is a good way to counter “man-hating” rhetoric.

Jaymes Todd, Eurydice’s alleged murderer, will face court by video link on October 30 for a further committal mention.
