A man has been charged with murdering his partner after police found him lying under a neighbour’s balcony at an apartment block in Sydney’s west.

Robert Cooper, 44, will face Bankstown Local Court on Tuesday charged with murdering his partner Donna Green, 55, in what police will allege in court was a domestic violence-related attack at their apartment in Bankstown.

Concerned family members contacted police about 7.30pm on Sunday when they could not get in touch with Ms Green at the apartment on De Witt Street.

When officers entered the apartment that night, they found Ms Green not breathing.

Police performed CPR on her until NSW Ambulance paramedics arrived, but she could not be revived and died at the scene.

Homicide Squad detectives and officers from the Bankstown Local Area Command launched an investigation into her death.

On Monday, Mr Cooper was discovered lying under the front balcony of a neighbour’s apartment.

Two elderly neighbours told Channel Seven that they found the man underneath their ground-floor balcony in a very confined space.

“He was under there for about half an hour before the police turned up,” the man said.

“Police said ‘Oh, Mr Cooper, we’ve got a warrant for your arrest’.”

Mr Cooper was arrested and taken to Bankstown Police Station. He had no shoes on and appeared to be limping as he was loaded into a police vehicle.

He was charged with one count of murder, and was refused police bail before his scheduled court appearance on Tuesday.

A neighbour, Leon Sofilas, told Channel Seven he heard yelling and smashing bottles on Saturday night coming from the apartment where Ms Green died.

It was not immediately clear when she allegedly was attacked.

“There was a lot of smashing, yelling, screaming, beer bottles being smashed, and then silence,” Mr Sofilas said.

“I could have helped. Like what if .. what if I had’ve went and knocked on the door?”

He described Ms Green as “just a kind lady”. /*\n”,color:”green”, title:”Woman\’s body found”, maxWidth:200, open:0}] );}if (!window.gmapsLoaders) window.gmapsLoaders = [];window.gmapsLoaders.push(CreateGMapgmap2017276361);window.gmapsAutoload=true;/*]]>*/
