An 18-year-old man has been charged with the murder of Geelong father-of-two Paul Grapsas, ABC News has reported.

Mr Grapsas’ body was found by his wife after he failed to return from a late-night dog walk.

Police said Mr Grapsas had left his home at Western Beach Road near the Geelong waterfront about 11pm on Thursday last week to walk his dog.

Hours later, his wife woke and realised he had not returned home. She found her husband’s body about 200 metres from their front door, about 4am last Friday.

According to ABC News, police arrested an 18-year-old man from the Geelong suburb of Belmont on Tuesday and on Wednesday charged him with murder.

A statement from the Grapsas family has described Paul as a “man of integrity” and father of two who was expecting his third child when he died.
