A second person has been charged with murder over the death of Ballarat woman Kobie Parfitt.
A 32-year-old woman was charged with one count of murder this afternoon.
She is currently in a correctional facility and will appear at the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on February 1.
In December, a 31-year-old Wendouree man was charged with murder in relation to Ms Parfitt's death.
Human remains were found in a Snake Valley mine shaft in December while detectives were searching the area as part of the investigation into mother's disappearance.
Ms Parfitt, 43, had last been seen alive at a property on Hickman Street on April 28.
Police say the investigation remains ongoing.
