Updated 26 minutes ago

Three people charged over the death of a mother-of-four from Bendigo have made brief appearances in court.

Peter Arthur, 44, from Kangaroo Flat, is charged with the murder of 39-year-old Samantha Kelly, whose body was found in bushland near Bendigo last week.

His housemates, Ronald Lyons, 43, and Christine Lyons, 44, are accused of being accessories.

All three appeared by videolink and did not make an application for bail.

The court has previously been told the three charged lived at the same address, while Ms Kelly lived in a bungalow at the rear of the property.

The court was told Arthur and Christine Lyons suffer from depression, while Lyons also has an intellectual disability.

The trio is due to face the Bendigo Magistrates’ Court again in June.

Samantha Kelly: Three arrested over missing Kangaroo Flat mother

Updated about an hour ago

Three men have been arrested in connection with the disappearance of a woman from Bendigo who has not been seen for three weeks.

Samantha Kelly, who has four children, was last seen near a local shopping centre on High Street in Kangaroo Flat on January 20.

The 39-year-old was reported missing by her brother two weeks later.

Police executed search warrants at properties in Bendigo and Kangaroo Flat.

Earlier they said her disappearance was out of character and feared she may have met with “foul play”.

She missed her youngest child’s first birthday and has not used her phone or bank accounts since she disappeared.

Investigators said she had not accessed her Facebook account, despite being a prolific user of the social media site.

Three people are in custody over the suspicious disappearance of missing mother-of-four Samantha Kelly as police swoop on homes in Bendigo and Kangaroo Flat.

The homicide squad and Bendigo detectives executed two search warrants at properties linked to the  case on Thursday night.

“There are three people in custody at the Bendigo Police Station who are assisting police with their investigation,” a police spokeswoman said.

“We are not in a position to comment further at this time.”

ABC TV reported that the trio in custody were all men.

Ms Kelly, 39, was last seen around the High Street shopping precinct in Kangaroo Flat, on Wednesday January 20 about 3.20pm.

Her brother Michael Kelly, who has been taking care of her children – aged six, five, four and one, was optimistic about the development.

“At least we’re going to get some closure as to what’s going on, where she is, is she alive or isn’t she alive,” he said. 

“I believe they can give us the information that we need and hopefully she’s alive and we can go to where she is.”

Speaking to Fairfax Media this week, the three people Ms Kelly was living with prior to her disappearance – Christine Lyons, Ronald Lyons and Peter Arthur –  hit back at suggestions they were involved.

“We’ve got nothing to hide, we just want her home … we’re not guilty of anything except letting her walk out that door,” Ms Lyons said. 

The trio were among at least 10 people police have spoken to over Ms Kelly’s disappearance.

Despite detectives maintaining the last independent and confirmed sighting of Ms Kelly was on January 20 at an ATM, Ms Lyons said Ms Kelly left their home at 3.30am on January 23.

“She woke me to tell me she was going, she said ‘I’m done, I’ve had it with this Mark s–t, I’m done’. You can have the f–king kids, I’m gone and that’s it,” Ms Lyons said.

“She was very strange for four to seven days, she didn’t want to come anywhere near the kids.”

Ms Kelly’s family and friends have maintained the disappearance was out of character and that she would never leave her children.

At least two of her children were due to be interviewed by homicide detectives on Thursday afternoon.

    • Bill you don’t know shit about Samantha. You don’t know why she left where she was living to live there. How about the 2nd brother was comforting & telling everything she wanted to hear & she fell for his lies, she has his kid then she gets abuse tirelessly, she moved towns because of it & all of her family is interstate. Nor did you know whether she was trying to move out of there which she was, she had been applying for houses around Bendigo. Nor did you know she was enrolling in a course to better herself. So stick with with a topic you know more about like why your middle finger smells like crap.

  2. She obviously had interests elsewhere. Maybe the Eddie Lugs! Some people just cant better themselves for the sake of their children. Where the f…k were DHS they are piss weak useless bastards.Thats right the code of silence among the ferals. Theyre as dumb as dog shit. An embarressment to decent australians.Theyre ill bred illiterate scum. The whole lot of them.Thats what you get for mixing with shit.Just like the scum that were found in the tradies toolbox in the drink.

  3. Sam had 3 children to 1 brother & just found out she was pregnant with the 3rd when he left. Not unheard of. The other brother comforts her & tells her everything she wasnts to her & she falls for him & falls pregnant 3 years later & he wants the baby after she has her she copes abuse from mutual “friends” so she moves out of the area but close enough that the father can see his child. She tries to move out but keeps being knocked back for houses. All of her family live interstate. She wanted to enroll in a course for hers & her childrens future. How do I know all this? She was my friend & Christine is my cousin.
