Investigators said Rajwinder Singh, of Punjab origin, killed 24-year-old Toya Cordingley because her dog barked at him in 2018.

After his arrest on Friday, 38-year-old Rajwinder told Delhi police that he went to Wangetti beach in Queensland after a fight with his wife. During the investigation, he told the Delhi Police that he was carrying some fruits and a kitchen knife.

Cordingly, a pharmacy worker, was walking her dog on the beach. When Cordingly’s dog started barking at Rajwinder, the two argued. Police said this led to India attacking and Cordingley’s alleged killing.

Then he buried the body in the sand and tied the dog to a tree.
