Police have charged a man with murder after the body of an elderly woman was found in a burnt-out home in the New South Wales Hunter region.

Emergency services were called to a home in Raymond Terrace about 12:30am on Saturday after reports of an explosion and fire.

Once the fire was extinguished, firefighters discovered the body of a 76-year-old woman who owned the house inside.

The 69-year-old man — who the ABC believes was her carer — was charged with domestic violence-related murder and destroying property with intent to endanger life.

Police investigating the incident were on Saturday examining a possible link between the house fire and a car crash on the Pacific Highway.

They said that about an hour after the fire, the man was involved in a head-on crash with a truck while travelling the wrong way up the Pacific Highway near Bulahdelah, 60 kilometres north of Newcastle, and sustained non life-threatening injuries.

He was refused bail to appear at Newcastle Local Court on September 6.

Ms Moriarty was allegedly accompanied by 32-year-old Scott Keighran, who police said had links to the Rebels bikie gang and had only been out of jail for less than two months. It is alleged the pair forced their way into the property, where a fight broke out with the three people who were inside the home at the time.
