ELDERLY MAN CHARGED FOR ALLEGEDLY STABBING PARTNER TO DEATH AT SOUTHPORT HOME ON QUEENSLAND’S GOLD COAST

– An elderly man has been charged over the stabbing murder of his partner in Southport on the Gold Coast.
Police were called to the couple’s suburban home about 8:00am yesterday.
Officers found the body of a 69-year-old grandmother, who had been stabbed to death, in the same room as her 72-year-old partner.
The man was found with self-inflicted stab wounds and was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital, where he underwent surgery.
He remains in a stable condition.
He has been charged with one count of murder, with an initial hearing being held in his absence at Southport Magistrates Court this morning.
Yesterday, detective Senior Sergeant Chris Toohey said there had been no prior signs of trouble.
“No they’re a quiet couple that have never drawn attention to themselves,” he said.
Sharrene Allen says she had lived near the pair for 16 years.
“They have lovely grandchildren,” she said – ABC
