A 34-year-old man has briefly faced court charged with murdering Rebels bikie boss Nick Martin, who was publicly assassinated in front of terrified children last year.

The man, who cannot be named, was arrested at his Waikiki home, in Perth’s south, on Monday.

Police revealed on Wednesday that he had been charged with one count of murder and two counts of unlawful act or omission with intent to harm.

The man faced a Perth court on Wednesday and the magistrate ordered that he be remanded in custody until his next appearance on April 28.

A suppression order has been made preventing the publication of anything that might reveal his identity.

Martin was assassinated by a suspected sniper during an event at Kwinana Motorplex on December 12.

Police previously said they believed Martin was shot from about 300m away while attending the event with his wife Amanda.

Former Bandidos bikie member Ricky Chapman was also hurt, while a five-year-old boy suffered a minor injury from the shot.

Taskforce Ravello was formed to investigate the shooting and a $1m reward was offered for information leading to the conviction of the person or people responsible.

Detectives seized cars, a motorbike and a boat, and carted away bags of evidence from the Waikiki property on Monday.
