A woman has been charged with murder after the body of a 27-year-old man was found in the middle of the road at Raymond Terrace at the weekend.
Officers were called to the intersection of Watt and Payton streets at about 5.45am on Saturday and discovered the body of a man who had been stabbed.
Paramedics were unable to revive the man and he died at the scene, with the scene examined by specialist forensic police.
Following inquiries, officers attended a motel in North Haven yesterday and arrested a 21-year-old woman on an outstanding warrant.
Detectives from Port Stephens-Hunter Police District then travelled to Port Macquarie Police Station and charged the woman with murder.
She has been refused bail to appear before Port Macquarie Local Court today.
The man and woman are believed to have be known to each other.
