Coffs Harbour detectives arrested Mr Jones shortly after Ms Reynolds was reported missing on December 7.

A crime scene was established at the Arosa Motel and Ms Reyonold's body was later found in bushland off Butler's Rd.

At the time police described the two as "associates".

Mr Jones appeared in court briefly today but did not enter a plea.

He was remanded in custody until his next appearance on May 7.
