A woman has been charged with murder over the alleged stabbing death of a man at Raymond Terrace at the weekend.

27-year-old Jason Adams from Medowie was found at the corner of Payton and Watt Streets early Saturday with a stab wound to his torso – he died at the scene.

It’s believed he’d been living in a nearby house after recently being released from gaol on parole.

Police arrested a 21-year-old woman at a North Haven motel south of Port Macquarie early Monday morning.

The Taree woman was last night charged with murder and is expected to front Port Macquarie Local Court today (Tuesday 3 March 2020).

Police say the alleged victim and offender were not in a relationship but were known to each other.

Investigations are continuing and it’s likely further arrests will be made.
