It is believed children were inside a house where a woman was slain in a frenzied stabbing attack.

9 News report, the woman, aged in her 20s, was found with multiple stab wounds in the driveway of the Kippa-Ring home and died despite the frantic efforts of paramedics to revive her.

Her partner, 35, has been charged with murder.

Police said children were at the house when the attack occurred late on Thursday night.

Paramedics have described the terrible scene that confronted them.

“The patient had received multiple stab wounds, some to the chest and the arms, and also had wounds to her neck and substantial facial traumas,” ambulance service spokesman Brad Hardy told ABC radio.

“It is certainly a very graphic (scene) and is one of the worst situations that we’ve seen around this area for quite some time.”

The woman’s partner was arrested at the scene and taken to the Redcliffe Hospital for treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

He was to face a bedside hearing in hospital on Friday.

Fairfax media is reporting the couple’s four children were at the home when the killing took place.

“I hear only the girl screaming,” neighbour Nuan O’Doherty told Fairfax, adding the four children sometimes played with her own kids.

“I don’t know what happened and I go out and see all the police. It makes my kids very worried.”

9 News reports, relatives of the man have spoken of their shock at Thursday night’s tragedy, saying he was “a really good man”.

“He never drink (sic), never smoke, all he does, he just wants to build a future for his family,” the woman, who did not want to me named, told Fairfax media.

“The news we heard, it really break (sic) our heart.”

  • How horrible for those poor children!
    When will the violence stop?
    Those poor babies are left without a Mummy because this man snapped, there is no justifiable excuse for taking the life of another.
    Rest in peace poor woman, & god bless your children during this horrific time!


  • such a horrible horrible tragedy!


  • Why do Mens have to be so cruel.


  • This is truely terrible, poor lady and children


  • Yet another tragedy that should never have happened. I wish we knew what triggers so many of these murders between partners and we may be able to help people in such situations and prevent such voilence occuring. We don’t know whether or not the alledged is the father of the children.


  • How dreadful for the children and their wider family.


  • Let hope the children were not aware at the time of what was going on.
    With luck they didnt see or hear anything.


  • Those poor kids. I hope for their sakes they didn’t witness that horrible act :(


  • Wow, How does life get so bad it ends up horrifically like this, very sad.


  • Those poor poor children. My heart goes out to them


  • I’m shocked that the more effort is put into stopping domestic violence, the more violence there seems to be.


  • Poor woman! And poor kids that had to witness so much violence! They will need a lot of help now, and growing up. :-(


  • this unfortunately is now all too common in the news and it is disgusting that people think that they still can do these evil malicious attacks. My heart breaks for her children who are probably traumatised by all this and no parents now to comfort them :(


  • I hope the poor children receive professional counseling for this traumatic experience. To lose their mum in such a horrific way is going to cause damage
