Two men have appeared in court charged with the murder of a Secret Harbour mother who was dumped outside of Joondalup Health Campus.
Lucas James Yarran, 19, and Leroy Smith, 20, briefly appeared in the Joondalup Magistrates Court and were not required to plead to the charges of murder, kidnapping and armed robbery.
The court heard the men were allegedly armed with a machete and baseball bat when they entered a home in Ridgewood and kidnapped Peta Fairhead, before they stole jewellery and methamphetamine.
It is alleged they killed the 27-year-old mother-of-three a short time later, before dumping her at the front entrance of Joondalup Health Campus in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Yarran and Smith were remanded in custody to appear in court again later this month.
Police are still searching for a third man over the incident.
