Paul Costa’s body was found by a dog walker in Dunstan Reserve in Brunswick West on July 3.

His four-wheel-drive was found four days later in a Coburg street.

Detectives last week charged three teenagers, an 18-year-old man and two boys, aged 16 and 17, with murder.

One of the boys was extradited from the NSW city of Newcastle.

Mr Bartley is also charged with using a knife to steal Mr Costa’s Patrol.

Magistrate Carolyn Burnside rejected an attempt by Mr Bartley’s lawyer to suppress the young man’s name.

Mr Bartley, of Truganina, and the three teenagers are in custody and due to return to court in January. The two boys will appear before a children’s court.
