Two men will face Joondalup Magistrates Court, charged with the kidnap and murder of a 27-year-old mother of three.

Petal Fairhead was allegedly dumped from a car outside the Joondalup Health Campus around 3.15am on Wednesday.

Police arrested a 19 and 20 year old overnight and they were subsequently charged with murder, kidnapping and armed robbery.

WA Police have also revealed they are searching for a third man in relation to Mrs Fairhead’s death, who is known to police, and detectives have urged the man to hand himself in.

It’s alleged Mrs Fairhead was dumped out of a vehicle at the emergency entrance of the Joondalup hospital in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The mother was rushed inside, but soon died from her injuries.

A vehicle of interest was located in Perth’s northern suburbs yesterday.

Seven news reporter Jamie Freestone was in court for the first appearances of 19 year old Leroy Daniel Smith and 20 year old Lucas James Yarran.
