A man accused of stabbing to death a woman on a Melbourne street allegedly told a prostitute and an undercover police officer about the murder.

Christian Bain-Singh appeared before Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Wednesday charged with murdering Rani Featherston in 2014.

Prosecutors say the 23-year-old has given police, an undercover operative and a prostitute different explanations about what allegedly happened when Ms Featherston was murdered.

The 34-year-old's body was found in a pool of blood on a street in Eumemmerring in April 2014, some 500 metres from her home.

She had stab wounds to her head and face.

It's alleged Bain-Singh murdered Ms Featherson some time between April 1 and April 2, 2014 when her body was discovered.

Investigators are still establishing the circumstances of her murder.

"There's a factual dispute," a prosecutor told a committal mention before Magistrate Charlie Rozencwajg.

"The prosecution cannot say exactly what happened that night."

No one was charged over her murder until Bain-Singh was arrested in June.

His arrest came two weeks after Ms Featherston's family made a plea for help finding her killer, and homicide detectives released new information about her last movements.

Bain-Singh will return to court for a committal hearing in February.
