Man dead after alleged stabbing in Claremont

THE death of a 57-year-old Claremont man is now being investigated by murder detectives after the man died of his injuries at Royal Perth Hospital last Friday.

The man was found injured at his home in Mount Road, Claremont the previous Tuesday.

Police will allege he was stabbed with a knife, before he was taken by St John Ambulance to the hospital.

A Wembley Downs woman (46), known to the man, was arrested at the home and charged with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

The charge may be upgraded when she reappears at Perth Magistrates Court on March 28.
