The man accused of murdering Nerol Doble, who died after suffering burns from a house fire in rural NSW, has been refused bail.

Emergency services were called to a home on Bribbaree Road in Bribbaree – which is 50 km northwest of Young – at around 12 pm on Sunday (7 January) following reports a woman had been injured in a house fire, NSW Police said.

Ms Doble was found suffering from severe burns.

The 65-year-old was airlifted to Royal North Shore Hospital in a critical condition before police appealed to the public for help in finding Shannon James Doble.

He was arrested at Parkes Police Station a short time later. In the early hours of Monday morning (8 January), police learned Ms Doble had died in hospital.

Mr Doble, a 42-year-old from the Lithgow region in NSW, was charged with murder, damaging property by fire and assault.

He faced the Young Local Court on Monday, where Magistrate Don McLennan refused him bail and remanded him in custody for a mention of the matter on 4 March.

It is believed that Mr Doble is Ms Doble’s son.
