Newcastle detectives are continuing to question a 30-year-old man over the death of a woman in a Brown Street unit early today.
A neighbour alerted police to a violent domestic dispute just after 3 this morning.
It’s understood the alleged suspect also called police, who arrived a short time later to find the woman had died from multiple stab wounds.
The man and woman are both Chinese nationals.
Detective Inspector Graham Parker says they still don’t have many clues as to why the incident became so violent.
