Two men have today been charged with murdering Sandringham's Shannon Shelby Baker.

Police launched a homicide investigation after the 55-year-old was found dead inside his home on Calgary St on Tuesday, December 11, 2018.

The arrests were made after a police search at two properties this morning.

A family spokesperson said: "The news that people have been charged has been the best news we could wish for and while the whole family is still angry that this happened we feel very relieved there has been a result".

Detective Inspector Aaron Pascoe said a large group of detectives had been working tirelessly on Operation Epopeus for two months in an effort to find those responsible for Baker's death, and to bring closure to his family.

Pascoe said "the investigation was a complex one, and we want to thank people who have contacted us after our many appeals for information."
