A woman has been charged with murder after what police allege is the “suspicious” death of another woman known to her in central Queensland.
Emergency services were called to an address in Burge Crt in Glenella – a suburb of Mackay – at 11.20am on Thursday.
Upon arrival, a 73-year-old Bundaberg woman was found dead.
A crime scene was declared and a 55-year-old woman was taken into police custody.
A Queensland Police spokesperson said the 55-year-old has since been charged with one count of murder (domestic violence).
It is alleged the two women are known to each other.
She will appear in the Mackay Magistrates Court on Friday.
If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic and family violence, you should report it to police.
