Gilbert Caetano was found unconscious at a home in Brighton-Le-Sands early on Sunday morning. Despite efforts to revive him, he died at the scene.
Jade Walker, 31, was arrested at the home and later charged with manslaughter and one count of entering a dwelling with intent.
Court documents say Mr Caetano suffered injuries to his head and face before his death, ABC reports. Police are treating the issue as a domestic violence incident.
Walker did not apply for bail at Sutherland Local Court on Monday, and it was formally refused.
She is due to face court via audio visual link next Monday.
Walker is the sister of Manly NRL player Dylan Walker.
The Sea Eagles said they were supporting the Australian and NSW Origin representative player and his family.
“Given the serious nature of the charges before the court and the need to let due legal process unfold, neither Dylan or the club will be making any further public comment,” the club said in a statement on Monday.
