Woman charged with murder of man stabbed at home

A woman will face court charged with murder after allegedly stabbing a man to death.

Police responded to reports of a domestic incident in Sydney's eastern suburbs about 6.15pm on Tuesday, attending a house on Murrabin Ave at Matraville.

Paramedics treated a 37-year-old man for stab wounds but he died at the scene.

Officers arrested a woman near the property, who was taken to hospital, but has since been charged with domestic-violence related murder.

The home remained cordoned off on Wednesday morning as officers continued to carry out forensic work at the scene, with police dogs also attending.
