Harvey allegedly murdered his wife as she returned home from work, filling shelves at night at Coles.

“She was a popular little girl had lots of friends.”

Charlotte attended pre-kindy at Ballajura’s Kingfisher Park pre-school and her young friends are now at a loss.

Ms Oswald is now asking for relatives to get in touch so they can hand over some precious mementos belonging to Charlotte that were left at the school.
