A woman accused of murdering the & # 39; quaker & # 39; girl Danielle Easey, is a four-year-old mother who allegedly imitated her victim on social media in the following weeks.
Carol Marie Dawson McHenry, 32, was arrested Thursday in a house in Holmesville, on the central coast of NSW, less than a month after Mrs. Easey's body was found in plastic on the banks of a creek.
McHenry is accused of being an additional murder and gaining an unfair financial advantage through deception.
The mother of the four is said to have imitated Mrs. Easey, 29, on social media in the days after her death to gain access to her bank accounts, the police will claim in court.

Mrs. Easey's body was found wrapped in plastic and dumped by the banks of a creek on August 31. The police now believe that she was killed fourteen days earlier and her body was stored in a disused chicken factory
It is believed that McHenry knew her co-perpetrator Justin Kent Dilosa, 33, who was accused by the police of the murder of Mrs. Easey.
The police claim that Mrs. Easey – herself the mother of two – was murdered in one of the two houses on the Central Coast in the days around August 17.
Her body was reportedly wrapped in plastic foil and taken to a disused chicken factory in Cardiff, about 80 kilometers away, where it lay for fourteen days.
On August 31, she was dumped on the shores of Cockle Creek on Lake Macquarie.
McHenry appeared briefly in Toronto Local Court on Friday, sobbing during the hearing when her bail was denied.
Her co-accused Dilosa will also appear in court on Friday.

& # 39; A post-mortem investigation confirmed that Danielle had been seriously attacked and sustained stab wounds, & # 39; he said.
Dickinson said the two arrested Mrs. Easey had been & # 39; for some time & # 39; knew.

On Thursday, detectives arrested a 33-year-old man in an industrial building in Cardiff just before 10 am and brought him to the Belmont police station. About an hour later, a 32-year-old woman was arrested in a home in Holmesville and taken to the Toronto police station
A Mitsubishi Delica, which, according to police, was the car used to transport Mrs. Easey's body, was confiscated and forensically examined
& # 39; All three (people) were employees and had known each other for some time. The precise nature of the relationship is not something I will comment on today, & he said.
& # 39; Based on the information we need to provide today, there is nothing to indicate that it involves people other than those we arrested today. & # 39;
In the midst of Thursday's arrests, detectives executed two crime scene orders in the industrial building of Cardiff.
They were also looking for a house in Holmesville and a house in Narara, almost an hour away.
A Mitsubishi Delica, whose police claimed the car was used to transport Mrs. Easey's body, was confiscated and forensically examined.
Mrs. Easey made the national headlines in 1989 when she was born on a grass strip after the Newcastle earthquake.
When the hospital was evacuated, her mother Jennifer Collier was forced to give birth in an improvised tent made of sheets.
Mrs. Easey was born 90 minutes after the 5.6 tremor, reducing part of the city to rubble.
She was nicknamed & # 39; Quaker & # 39; after her birth.
The 29-year-old had two children, Reef and Mahli, and a close friend told Daily Mail Australia that she worked hard to build a life for them.

& # 39; You were my soulmate and my best friend. You were a sensational mother, not just for your children, but for everyone around you.
& # 39; I could talk about you for hours, but everyone here already knows what kind of person you were.
& # 39; You were really a great person. I cherish every moment I have spent with you.
& # 39; You never made me smile and you never showed me unconditional love. & # 39;
