A Melbourne blogger admitted to defacing a memorial to the death of comedian Eurydice Dixon by painting obscene graffiti next to him in an attempt to infuriate feminists.
Ms. Dixon, 22, was raped and killed while walking home through a Carlton North park after performing a comedy show on June 13.
Andrew Nolch, 29, was captured leaving the Melbourne court Thursday in Melbourne.

After the death of Mrs. Dixon, the flowers soon piled up in the field of Princes Park where her body was found.
The improvised monument was visited by thousands and widely covered by the media.
In the run-up to a large public vigil at the memorial site, anti-feminist blogger Andrew Nolch devised a plan to cause as much outrage as possible.
Nolch, 29, who hosts a Scientology podcast, bought paint and went to Princes Park late at night to paint a 25m penis on the site.
Police patrolling Princes Park in the inner suburb of Carlton North in Melbourne discovered vandalism at 3.50 am.
Firefighters and council workers were not able to remove the graffiti, so the destroyed lawn was removed and replaced at a cost of almost $ 20,000.
