Boyfriend of Western Sydney dead woman Hayley Ernst charged with breaching AVO

Boyfriend of Western Sydney dead woman Hayley Ernst charged with breaching AVO

A MAN whose girlfriend was found dead on Saturday night after he said she hit her head has been charged with breaching an AVO.

Max Spencer, 21, was in court last week and was due in Penrith Local Court again on Tuesday in regard to the AVO but was today charged with breaching it after his 21-year-old partner Hayley Ernst, also known as Hayley Jessie McClenahan Ernst, died at a house in Debry Rd, Kingswood last night.

Spencer will now appear at Penrith Local Court tomorrow morning in relation to the breach of the AVO.

Neighbour Ashley Egtberts, 23, said she and fiance Kevin were at their home on Derby Rd, Kingswood when a man knocked at the door just after midnight, asking to use a phone, telling them his partner had a head injury and needed help.

Kevin rang triple-0 and raced next door, carefully following the instructions given out by the emergency operator, but the woman no longer had a pulse.

Ms Egtberts said the dead woman was sitting upright with her hands flopped beside her as though she had been propped up, but displayed no blood, bruising or other visible signs of injury and Ms Egtberts said she and Kevin were told the young woman had hit her head on the coffee table.

The woman is believed to have moved into the house, which is a long-term rental understood to be occupied by the woman’s cousin and his partner, in the past few weeks, with her partner believed to have begun staying at the house shortly afterwards.

“I didn’t even know who they were until last night,” Ms Egtberts said.

St Marys Local Area Command’s Supt Greg Peters this morning told reporters that the cause of the death was at that time unknown.

“We will no doubt wait until the body is conveyed to Sydney mortuary, some time this morning, and then we have to wait for the results of a post mortem … at this stage I am unable to say what the injuries area,” he said.

Friends of Ms Ernst, a 21-year-old mother-of-two, would be sorely missed.

“She was a beautiful treasured young mother, she was too caring, she was a great mother, and her daughters loved their mum so, so much,” friend Sarah Nevaeh Steven told The Daily Telegraph.

“I’ll miss her tremendously and my children will miss their aunty Hayley.”
