Sydney stabbing suspect charged with murder

Sydney stabbing suspect charged with murder

"He is going through a very hard situation at this time", Mr Khatiz said outside court.

After slashing the throat of Michaela Dunn, Mert Ney took a video of her bloodied body, declared "Allahu Akbar" and sent the clip to a friend, police allege.

A man accused of fatally stabbing a woman and seriously injuring another in Sydney's CBD on Tuesday has been released from hospital and is expected to be charged over the attacks today.

'That's what my client has informed me, ' he said.

The man accused of carrying out a stabbing rampage in Sydney's CBD has now been charged. "I mean there was just, there was no option", Bamford said.

Ney's family reported him missing following a domestic dispute last week. It's understood he sought medical treatment about that time.

The NSW health minister, Brad Hazzard, and the mental health minister, Bronnie Taylor, described the circumstances as "tragic" and have ordered a review.

In stark contrast to Ney's troubled existence, Ms Dunn has been remembered as a attractive, bright young woman with the world at her feet.

Woods is one of five players who has shot the course record, doing so in the 2006 PGA Championship that he won. When his day ended he sat six shots back of Justin Thomas and Jason Kokrak who are tied for first at 7 under.


Michaela's best friend, who goes by the social media name Ashleigh Elise, penned a heartfelt tribute, describing her friend as "the most lovely person inside and out". Ms Dunn was later found at the apartment with a laceration to her neck and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mr Ney, who lived in Marayong in western Sydney with his mother and sister, had previously been treated for mental health issues, presenting himself at Blacktown Hospital just days before the incident but checking himself out after six hours.

Police believe Ney attended the Clarence Street unit to see the 24-year-old for "the purposes of prostitution".

Mr Khatiz said Ney had also been denied medication for his mental illness.

Nay, who is a recent convert to Islam, was found to have a thumb drive containing details of "white supremacist" attacks in the United States and New Zealand.

NSW Police have not classed the attack as a terrorist incident and have not identified any links to terrorist organisations.

The NSW police commissioner, Mick Fuller, described the men who helped detain Ney as "the highest order of heroes".
