SELF DEFENCE ON ALVA DEATHS

Police are still waiting to speak more with a 29-year-old Kirwan woman in relation to the double stabbing deaths at Alva on Monday October 1.
She’s been under Police guard at the Townsville Hospital, and in and out of surgery from shoulder injuries sustained from an altercation late in the night on Sunday September 30.
It comes after police released a 19-year-old man from the Topton Street home without charge yesterday morning.
Yesterday afternoon he walked through the scene with investigators.
It’s understood the 29-year-old woman went to the house at around 12:30am on Monday seeking help.
A 19-year-old man at the address assisted the woman.
Detective Inspector Chris Lawson said, “We’re certainly looking at it as a case of self-defence”.
A group of men then attended the Topton Street address and a disturbance occurred during which time two men sustained fatal injuries.
A 27-year-old New South Wales man and a 37-year-old Alva man were pronounced deceased at the scene.
The 29-year-old Ayr woman received treatment to injuries sustained prior to her attending the residence and is receiving treatment in hospital.
It is understood the 19-year-old man did not know the woman or the men prior to the incident.
Detectives remain in Alva and investigations are on-going. A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
