A woman has been charged over the murder of her ex-boyfriend at a home in Sydney.

Nikita Kirby was arrested near the home in Matraville in Sydney’s eastern suburbs on Tuesday night after emergency services were called at about 6.15pm.

Moments earlier her ex-boyfriend Scott Wallace, 37, had been found suffering from  wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Kirby, 31, was charged with murder (domestic violence) on Wednesday. She was refused bail and will face Waverley Local Court on Thursday.

On Wednesday morning, the single-storey brick home remained a crime scene with officers from Eastern Beaches Police Area Command and the State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad, as well as forensic police investigating.

Residents of Murrabin Avenue told Daily Mail Australia they saw a woman running up and down the dead-end street in the aftermath of the stabbing.

 ‘She was running down the street screaming,’ a resident said.

‘It’s a quiet family-friendly street, we’re shocked this has happened on our doorstep.’

A local business owner said they had seen the pair arguing outside the Matraville hotel earlier that afternoon.

In 2021, an AVO was taken out in the NSW Local Court against Mr Wallace by police, for Ms Kirby’s protection. That AVO lasted for two years and ended last October.
