A man has been refused bail after being charged with murder following the fatal stabbing of a man in Windale on Friday. 

Just before 4.30pm on March 29th, emergency services were called to a home on Kankool Way, following reports of an assault. 
Prior to their arrival, a 40-year-old man suffering stab wounds to his chest was driven to Belmont Hospital.

The injured man was transferred to John Hunter Hospital where he underwent surgery; however, police were later notified that the man had died. 

The younger man was subsequently charged with murder. 

He appeared at Newcastle Local Court on Saturday 30th March, where he was formally refused bail to appear in court in April.
