Homicide Squad detectives from Victoria Police have charged a Darley man following the death of a man inside a shopping centre car park on 16 August.
A 40-year-old Darley man was located deceased in a vehicle in the Brimbank Shopping Centre car park off Neale Road just after 5.30pm.
Another man, a 47-year-old also from Darley, was found in the same car and taken to Sunshine Hospital in a critical condition. He was discharged from the hospital on the same night.
The 47-year-old man has since been charged with one count of murder following the death.
At the time of the mysterious death, witnesses at the scene were told by emergency responders it was likely a drug overdose.
The 47-year-old Darley man has been remanded to appear in Melbourne Magistrates' Court on December 10.
