The boyfriend of a 44-year-old woman has been charged with murder, after her body was found in bushland near Townsville.
A group of teenagers were quad biking over the weekend, when they made the grim discovery in Bluewater.
Detectives on the case say the mother of four had only recently got into a relationship with the man.
He has also been charged with one count each of acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm after allegedly shooting at a vehicle in Yarlboroo on Sunday, August 14.
The man is also facing a stealing charge for a fuel drive-off at a Giru service station on August 13.
He will appear in the Mackay Magistrates Court today.
