Man stabbed in Mernda home

A WOMAN has been charged with murder after a man was allegedly stabbed to death in Mernda last night.
The 30-year-old is due to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court today over the incident at Ramez St, in Melbourne’s northeast.
Emergency services were called to the address following reports of a stabbing around 5pm on Friday.
The victim died at the scene and homicide detectives arrested the Mernda woman.
A police spokeswoman last night said the man and his attacker were known to each other.
A neighbour, who asked not to be named, said a caucasian couple and three children lived in the house.
“They’ve argued every night for the past couple of months,” she said.
“They’re always screaming and slamming doors.”
A husband and wife, who live opposite the couple, said they overhead the pair having a heated argument on Thursday.
“It sounded like a lovers’ tiff,” they said.
“He was yelling ‘open the f---ing door, don’t be a dumb b — ch’.
“Sounded like she locked him out when he went out to get the mail.”
The Herald Sun understands the couple’s three children remain in the care of another neighbour.
Forensic detectives began collecting evidence from inside the home just before 8.30pm.
A childproof fence could be seen through a second story window.
