Sydney man accused of murdering wife

A 60-year-old man is behind bars charged with fatally stabbing his wife before she was found near a hospital in Sydney's eastern suburbs.

The 47-year-old woman died shortly after she was found unresponsive with stab wounds on Barker Street, near the Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick, at about 8.45pm on Saturday, police say.

Mourad Kerollos, her husband from Panania, was arrested nearby and charged with murder on Sunday.

Police earlier described the incident as "domestic" related.

He did not apply for bail and it was formally refused at Parramatta Bail Court later in the day.

Kerollos is expected before Central Local Court via video link on July 18.
