Alleged Mornington murderer charged

Mornignton scene 1

A man has been charged with murder, after a body was found in a residential carpark on Hobart's eastern shore this week.

The 31-year-old Mornington man was in custody not long after the grim discovery was made in the early hours of Monday morning.

He's now formally alleged to have fatally stabbed the 34-year-old male victim in the neck outside a unit complex at Carbeen Street in Mornington.

Police believe the incident is isolated and the pair known to each other.

The accused killer was due for an out-of-hours court hearing late on Tuesday.

Anyone with information is still being urged to contact Bellerive detectives on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000
