A woman has died and her daughter has been arrested in a suspected domestic violence-related murder in Sydney’s west.
Police arrived to a St Clair home about 11.40pm on Saturday after reports of an argument between two women and found the body of a 57-year-old woman inside the home.
She had multiple injuries, NSW Police said in a statement.
Her 25-year-old daughter was arrested in the front yard of a neighbour’s home.
A four-year-old boy, who was at home at the time, suffered a minor head injury and was treated at the Westmead Children’s Hospital before being released.
A knife has been seized for forensic examination and several crime scenes have been established inside the home.
Support is being provided to first responders at the scene, police said.
