Southport woman fatally stabbed

UPDATE: POLICE have charged a man with murder after he allegedly stabbed a young Southport woman to death in a home just to the north of the Gold Coast overnight.

Emergency crews were called to a property in Boronia Heights shortly after 11:30pm on Sunday night to find a 23-year-old woman with wounds to her chest.

Attempts by Ambulance crews to revive the woman were unsuccessful and she was pronounced dead at the Victor St address just before midnight.


Multiple news reports allege the young woman was stabbed in the heart by her 49-year-old step father.

He and another 41-year-old woman, believed to be the victim’s mother, were assisting police with their investigation.

Forensic officers remain at the scene as investigations continue.

The 49-year-old man charged with the woman’s murder will appear in Beenleigh Magistrates Court tomorrow.
