Woman found dead on Worongary road

Woman found dead on Worongary road

Detectives launched a homicide investigation after a neighbour found the body of the 51-year-old woman with head wounds on Arthur Payne Court in Worongary about 11.15pm on Sunday.

A 55-year-old man - said to be the woman's ex-husband - was later found badly injured in a nearby street.

A man has been charged with murder after a mother-of-three was found dead in the middle of a quiet suburban street on the Gold Coast.

Her estranged husband is due to front the Southport Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

Earlier, Detective Inspector Marc Hogan said an incident command centre had been set up.

'We've yet to determine the full circumstances of what went on, this is obviously a very, very serious matter'.

Inspector Hogan, describing the death as "brutal", said there were no domestic violence orders in place regarding the former couple.

"I suddenly just heard this guy screaming out, it was like he was in a state of melancholy, or distraught", Mr Meyer said.

The man is receiving medical treatment at the Robina Hospital and is being questioned by police.

"From what I understand they're certainly not life-threatening - it's not anything that's terribly significant", he said.
