A man arrested in Bendigo has faced court, accused of killing his 35-year-old partner who hasn't been seen since she visited her mother in hospital 8-months ago.

Jason Cooper has been accused of the manslaughter of Shae Francis, who was last seen at the Hervey Bay Hospital in October last year. 

The 44-year-old is  also charged with interfering with her corpse and stealing.

He appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court yesterday after being extradited on Tuesday.

Cooper didn't apply for bail and has been remanded in custody until the matter returns to court on  July 22.
