Amira Moghnieh, 30, was allegedly killed by her ex-husband Ahmad Hodroj, 39, after he left their children at his sister’s house.
Ms Moghnieh’s body was discovered in a house in Bexley, south Sydney, shortly before 6pm on Wednesday. Hodroj was arrested and charged with murder at the scene.
Photos and videos have surfaced of the happy, fun-loving young mother living her best life before her death.
Her cousin Karim told Daily Mail Australia on Saturday that Ms Moghnieh had spoken to her sister hours earlier and nothing seemed amiss.
“Her sister spoke to her the morning before the incident,” Karim said.
Mother of three, Amira Moghnieh, who was allegedly murdered by her estranged husband, had no worries and saw no warning signs of what was about to happen, according to her family.

Daily Mail Australia understands that Hodroj and Ms Moghnieh had been separated for a year when she came home last Wednesday evening to collect their young children.
His cousin Fadi said Hodroj had brought his three young children, ages two to six, to his sister’s house next door before Moghnieh arrived.
It is understood that he wanted to speak to Ms. Moghnieh about her divorce settlement, which was due to be finalized at the end of this month.
“He has three houses and she was going to keep some of his property,” Fadi said.
The death of Ms. Moghnieh has caused great grief in the family.
“From the greed of this world, my sister is gone, gone,” said her sister.
‘The mother of a sweet smile is gone, the bride of my heart is gone.’
‘May your soul rest in heaven my love,’ wrote another.
‘You will always be remembered in our hearts forever.’

‘His wife used to bring him lunch at work. She sometimes shared it. She was a good cook,” she said.
‘Her behavior has changed considerably since their separation.’
