His matter was heard in absentia at Melbourne Magistrate's Court on Sunday night.

His lawyers did not apply for bail.

He was remanded to remain in custody ahead of a first appearance in court on Wednesday.

Wilson's lawyer also revealed this is his first time in custody.

Police allege Wilson was having an altercation with Ms Broadbent at a home on Kiwi Retreat in Keilor Downs about 1pm on Saturday.

They believe the argument continued in a car Wilson was driving, with Ms Broadbent falling from the back seat onto the road as the car hit a corner.

She was flown to hospital but died after delivering the baby.
