A woman will face court today charged over her alleged role in the murder of a man on the state’s North Coast last month.

About 7.45am on Sunday 23 April 2023, police were called to Taree Hospital following reports a man had presented with life-threatening wounds.

The 38-year-old was assessed at the scene; however, he could not be revived.

Initial inquiries suggest the Taree man was injured at an address on Heath Avenue in Tuncurry, before being driven to hospital by a family member.

Strike Force Iteration was established to investigate the man’s death and comprised officers attached to Manning Great Lakes Police District and the State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad.

Due the course of the investigation, strike force investigators have arrested a 31-year-old man, a 25-year-old woman, and a 50-year-old woman this month. They were charged and remain before the courts.

Following further inquiries, a 50-year-old woman was arrested at Forster Police Station about 1.25pm yesterday (Friday 26 May 2023).

She was charged with being an accessory after fact to murder and wound person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

She was refused bail to appear Port Macquarie Local Court today (Saturday 27 May 2023).

Investigations under Strike Force Iteration are continuing.
