Police describe a ‘face-to-face’ scene after Emmerich Lasaker, a mother of two, was found dead in her Perth home.
A 37-year-old man, police say was an acquaintance of Ms Rasakar, was charged with her murder on Friday and appeared in Perth Magistrate’s Court on Saturday.
Police and St. John WA staff provided first aid to Mr. Lasaker, 35, before he was transferred to Royal Perth Hospital.
She later died of her injuries there.
Washington State Police Commissioner Col Branch described the scene as “confronting” for the officers and children at the scene.
“It’s a tragically sad day for our family,” he told ABC Perth Radio.
The man is also charged with aggravated armed robbery, aggravated residential burglary and crime, and reckless driving in connection with other incidents that allegedly occurred that same night.
A 37-year-old woman was arrested in St James shortly after Ms Rasakar was found with multiple serious injuries at her home on Knutsford Avenue, Kew.
The man allegedly crashed a gray ute on Berwick Street before fleeing to a nearby house, where he was arrested.
