The character had been killed episodes before and appeared totally unexpectedly in the episode called Unearthed. As the Wikipedia notes:

Though his character Charlie Francis had been killed off earlier in the second season, former series regular Kirk Acevedo appeared in the episode, sparking confusion among some viewers.

Has this ever been properly explained?

Basically, it was an episode they made during the first season, but didn’t air. Fox decided to air it during the second season.

This was explained during its original airing. The Fox promos for that episode explained it as a ‘lost 1st season episode’. That’s why Charlie’s there, and there’s no attention drawn to his presence, as he was always around during season 1.

Also, in this scan of the blu-ray booklet, you could see that the Unearthed episode is within the special feature of the disk 4. So the episode number 11 is “Johari Window”.
