A 66-year-old woman from Alexandra Hills, in Redland City, Queensland, has been charged with murder domestic violence following the death of a 64-year-old man last week.
At around 10.30am on August 14, Queensland Police were called to an address on Jasmine Street where they found the man deceased. A crime scene was declared at the property and an investigation was subsequently launched into the man’s death.
Last night, officers arrested a 66-year-old woman – who has not yet been identified – and charged her with domestic violence-related murder.
