A neighbor reported hearing screams from the apartment on Sunday night as families gathered to celebrate Easter Sunday.
When Eriksen appeared in court on Monday, the only words were ‘yes’ when the magistrate asked him if he understood his charges. The Daily Telegraph reported.
He has not applied for bail.
According to his LinkedIn, Eriksen works as an independent nutritionist to “empower people to make healthy food choices throughout their lives.”
He has held a number of positions in government, mining and banking, including insurance advisor at AMP and project manager at ANZ.
He also served as a senior financial analyst at the Department of Defense in 2009 and holds college degrees from Harvard University and Stanford University School of Medicine.
A friend of the couple described Mrs Fenwick as ‘very sweet’ and said the couple were known in the area for walking their two dogs in the local parks.
Local resident Prateek Mundae called the incident “shocking.”
“It’s very disheartening to hear,” Mr. Mundae told the ABC.
‘It’s quite surprising. I’ve lived here for three years.’
“I live on the corner and I saw a lot of police cars,” said another local resident.
“I am so nervous and sad for the family. It’s so bad and it’s really scary.’
