A 24-year-old Ipswich man has been extradited to Queensland from New South Wales to face court on a murder charge over the death of 58-year-old Goodna man David Thornton.
Police found human remains inside a freezer buried on Mr Thornton's property on Monday.
After conducting an autopsy, detectives have now confirmed the body is Mr Thornton.
He had been missing since February.
New South Wales police arrested Bobby Andrew Weaver in Byron Bay yesterday and he appeared via video link in the Tweed Heads Local Court this morning where a magistrate granted the extradition order.
The 24-year-old has been driven to Ipswich where he is expected to appear in court later this afternoon over Mr Thornton's murder.
Police divers spent the morning searching a creek on Mr Thornton's property.
