A domestic dispute is believed to be behind the stabbing murder of 69-year-old Mauryeen Kenny at her home in the quiet Remick St, Stafford Heights early on Saturday morning.
Her husband, Brian Kenny, phoned police from the residence shortly after the murder.
Paramedics were on the scene minutes later only to find Mrs Kenny dead as a result of numerous stab wounds.
Mr Kenny was arrested at the scene and was later charged with one count of murder.
Early reports have the couple having “heated arguments” previously.
The couple, aged in their 60’s, were described by neighbours as being “normal” while Mr Kenny was “just our average bloke”.
Brian Kenny will appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday.
