Woman charged with murder over stabbing

A 53-year-old woman has been charged with murder after a man died from stab wounds yesterday.

Karen Black, 53, from Corio, a suburb of Geelong, has been charged with one count of murder and was remanded in custody to appear before the Geelong Magistrates Court on Monday.

Ms Black handed herself in to police after 53-year-old Wayne Clarke, also of Corio, died from stab wounds in hospital in Geelong.

Mr Clarke was found by a passer-by in a car in Gheringhup St in Geelong about 4.50pm (AEDT) yesterday after being driven there and abandoned following the stabbing. He had been stabbed in nearby Beretta St in Corio, a police spokeswoman said.

It is the second murder in the area in a week, with Beretta St located only a few hundred metres away from Cloverdale Drive in Corio, where 26-year-old Brock Nightingale was shot dead on Saturday, October 24.

Two men, Matthew Grotheer, 29, from Batesford and Jayden Bishop, 21, from Herne Hill, have been charged with murder and remanded in custody.
