Skeletal Remains Found After Police Charge Mum, Her Partner, With Murder Of Young Girl

Police have found human remains at a weir in Chinchilla, just one day after a Queensland mother and her partner were charged over the murder and torture of a young girl.

Police charged Tane Saul Desatge, 40, and Sinitta Tammy Dawita, 28, with the murder and torture of Kaydence Dawita Mills, and of interfering with a corpse on Monday.

10 News First understands the two charged were the girl's mother and defacto partner.

On Tuesday, skeletal remains were found at a weir in Chinchilla, where a crime scene had earlier been declared.

A spokesman for Queensland Police said the remains are undergoing testing to confirm whether they are in fact the missing girl who vanished four years ago.

As the matter is before the courts, no further information can be provided.

Dawita and her fiance Desatge were arrested last weekend.

Both appeared in the Dalby Magistrates Court on Monday. They were remanded in custody for a committal mention on June 30 in the same court.

Kaydence was born in September 2014 but has not been seen since 2016, police said on Monday.
