Police are questioning a man over the discovery of a woman's body at a home near Wollongong, south of Sydney.
The woman's brother handed himself into Sydney police earlier this morning and is being treated for a stab wound.
Robert Ovadia joins me live from the crime scene at Bulli, live.
Rob, what more can you tell us?
Forensic belief -- police are going through their paces.
They found the body at six o'clock this morning after police were alerted by Gladesville police, in Sydney, that a man had presented himself for the stab wound.
It will be alleged that he killed his sister.
They found a woman with significant stab wounds is the weight has been described.
That man himself, police believe, had inflicted his own stab wound before seeing the police at Gladesville.
He has been taken to Royal North Shore Hospital where he is being treated for those wounds.
The people here are in a degree of shock.
They say the victim and the accused, her brother, a very decent people.
I didn't know him too personally sort of thing, just bumped into him here and there at Bulli pub on a Saturday afternoon.
And yeah, it's a real shock, I suppose, for everyone in the neighbourhood.
As with any investigation we look at the background in relation to people and their history.
At this stage I can't say whether mental health was an issue but I'm sure it's something we will consider.

We understand the man in his mid 40s evidently recently checked out of the psychiatric ward and he did get some fairly well with his sister so we could be looking at
