Two other men, a 43-year-old Christie Downs man and a 45-year-old man from Christie Downs, were arrested and accused of murder.
The three are all known to each other and the attack is not supposed to have been arbitrary, the police said.
The three were refused on bail of the police, and the 45-year-old man expected to appear in the Magistrates Court of Christies Beach on Monday.
The former wife of Mr. Hinrichsen and the 45-year-old man will appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court.

It is suspected that Mr. Hinrichsen died late on Friday evening or early Saturday morning.
& # 39; It seems to be a targeted problem, & # 39; Chief Inspector Yvette Clark said.
We do not believe there is any more danger to members of the public and we will continue to investigate and continue with the case from there. & # 39;

Forensic investigators searched the house and closed the street for traffic.
Neighbors said they did not see or hear anything suspicious.
"He kept himself at & # 39 ;," said neighbor Mandi McGlynn on the Adelaide Sunday Mail. & # 39; This was a big shock. I have never seen anything like it. & # 39;

The daughter of Mr. Hinrichsen, Lisa Hinrichsen, 28, said that her father – a supporter of Port Adelaide – loved his children and three grandchildren.
My father was not great all his life, but he was still my father over the years and he did his best … My father was unique and was always here for me.
He also liked footy and being with loved ones.
I love him very much and he will be missed forever. & # 39;
