ACT Policing Criminal Investigations Team is investigating the circumstances leading up to a disturbance, which left a 47-year-old Waramanga man deceased and a 41-year-old Waramanga woman seriously injured.

Initial enquiries have revealed that the pair were in a relationship and were house-sitting at the residence in Everard Place, Kambah, at the time.

The woman is continuing to receive treatment at The Canberra Hospital, where she remains in a stable condition.

ACT Policing have notified the deceased man’s immediate family, the woman’s immediate family and the residents of the home. All have requested privacy during this difficult time.

The ACT Coroner has confirmed that a post-mortem of the deceased will be conducted today (22 January 2016).
