Charge - Murder - Darwin City


A 56-year-old man has been charged with the death of his partner, a 51-year-old woman, after she was fatally stabbed outside a hotel in Darwin City last night. 

Police and paramedics were called to the scene just before 6 pm after receiving information that an injured woman had entered the hotel seeking help.

The woman was taken to Royal Darwin Hospital with life-threatening injuries and died shortly later.

CCTV operators were able to direct police to the man, who was still in the area, and he was arrested without incident. 

He has since been charged with murder and will appear before the court on Monday, 17 April 2023.
