WA Police have charged a 27-year-old woman with the alleged murder of a man in Joondalup.
“At first when I heard some minor screams I thought it was a nuisance, but in the end it was quite intense,” Mr Dinsdale said.
“I didn’t hear any man screaming. I just stuck my head out, but there were cops and ambulances, so I was probably done with it.
Another neighbor who lives next to the apartment, Richard King, said he heard a woman screaming for help.
“I didn’t know if it was domestic violence or something else,” he said.
