A man has been charged with murder in connection with the death of another man, believed by police to have been involved in drug-related crime, who was found in a backyard in south-west Sydney last year.

The body of Tuan Tran, 35, was found at his house in Young Street, Mount Pritchard, about 7.50am on October 30 following reports of an altercation earlier.

Mr Tran had suffered head injuries and lacerations but a post-mortem examination was inconclusive.

Adam Asad, 39, was arrested at a home in Cabramatta on Wednesday and charged with murder and aggravated break and enter.

Police allege Mr Asad was the driver of a Honda CR-V seen arriving at and leaving Mr Tran’s home about the time of the killing.
