A 19-year-old man has been charged with murder over the
stabbing death of his stepmother in Perth's northern suburbs.
Police were called to a home on Edgington Crescent,
Koondoola, about 4.30pm (local time) on Thursday where they
found a 57-year-old woman, reported by media to be Sugagan
"Sally" Kur, dead from multiple stab wounds.
The stepson was also injured and sent to Royal Perth Hospital
overnight, where he was under police guard.
On Friday afternoon, police said the stepson had been charged
with murder and remained in hospital.
A bedside hearing is planned for today.
