Meanwhile, the young woman killed was named today as 24-year-old, Michaela Dunn.
The victim, a marketing and public relations graduate, was found with fatal stab wounds to the neck and throat a short distance from where Ney allegedly terrorised CBD pedestrians in chilling scenes that were filmed by onlookers, and viewed around the world.
Michaela’s body was found in her Clarence Street apartment at 3.15pm, an hour after the suspect was taken into custody. It is believed the pair knew each other.
In a 2016 Facebook post, Michaela expressed her outrage over violence against women.
"Sexual violence and harassment is never acceptable. Take two minutes to read and sign this petition, it's such an important issue that needs to be addressed sooner than later," she wrote.
Ney is also accused of stabbing a 41-year-old woman who was believed to be a random pedestrian. She is in a stable condition.
Michaela’s mother described her girl as a "beautiful, loving woman who had studied at university and travelled widely". She also described her as "very much loved".
