Police allege Todd, who was 19 at the time, raped and murdered Ms Dixon some time between 10.30pm the day before and when her body was discovered.
During his previous appearance in Melbourne Magistrates Court on June 14, Todd's Legal Aid lawyer John Riordan said it was his first time in custody and stressed his vulnerability in that environment due to his youth and diagnosis of autism.
