Family And Friends To Remember Murdered Mum Samantha Fraser

A funeral is scheduled on Victoria's Phillip Island for mother of three Samantha Fraser weeks after her alleged murder.

The 38-year-old psychologist was found dead in her Cowes garage after failing to collect her children from school on July 23, with a 41-year-old man later charged with her murder.

Her death was described as a "crime that strikes the heart of our community" by police, who launched a public appeal for information before her alleged killer's arrest earlier this month.

It came amid a string of high-profile deaths with alleged links to domestic violence, prompting Premier Daniel Andrews to say the state had a long way to go to tackle the issue and call for a national response.

Family and friends are expected to gather at Cowes for a funeral on Friday.

The man charged with murder is due to face a Latrobe Valley magistrate on January 10.
