A former Blue Bay resident accused of murdering a young woman and her two year old daughter has been committed to stand trial.

42 year old Daniel James Holdom was first charged with the murder of 20 year old Karlie Pearce-Stevenson and her two year old daughter Khandalyce Pearce in October 2015, but the alarming details of the alleged incidents, which occurred in 2008, were only revealed in Sydney Central Local Court today.

Reports from Fairfax and Newscorp say police allege Mr Holdom photographed Ms Pearce-Stevenson's body "as a trophy" after "stepping on her throat and crushing her windpipe".

Ms Pearce-Stevenson's and her daughter's remains were found 1200km and five years apart, the mother's in the Southern Highlands' Belanglo state forest in 2010 and the daughters on the Karoonda Highway in South Australia in 2015.

Mr Holdom will face the Supreme Court in October.
