Police have charged a man with murder over the stabbing death of a woman in north Queensland on Saturday morning.
Police said a 49-year-old woman was killed at a unit complex in the Townsville suburb of Pimlico around 1:00am.
A 40-year-old man from Mount Isa was on Saturday morning charged with her murder.
Police will allege the death was a case of domestic violence but would not confirm the relationship between the accused killer and the victim.
The man is due to appear in Townsville Magistrates Court on Monday.
Neighbours told the ABC they have called police to the unit block in the past after hearing residents yelling and fighting.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk was in Townsville on Saturday but declined to comment.
