Nurse accused of stabbing her husband to death ‘heard him beg her to stop before he was attacked’

A nurse accused of stabbing her husband to death was allegedly captured threatening him on her own CCTV camera. 

Jean Louise Herholdt, 28, was charged with murder over the death of her husband Sean Murray, 32, at their home in north Brisbane on Thursday. 

She allegedly stabbed the father-of-three in the back with a 30cm kitchen knife after getting into an argument at the property in Murrumba Downs.

Police will allege that audio of Herholdt, also a mother-of-three, threatening Mr Murray and demanding money was caught on CCTV, Courier Mail reported. 

Audio recordings of the attack allegedly show the trained nurse ordering Mr Murray to ’empty’ his pockets. 

It will also be alleged that Mr Murray, who worked at Lenard’s Chicken, begged his wife to back down.   

Mr Murray allegedly pleaded with Herholdt to ‘stop, stop, stop’ after he had already been stabbed in the back in their living room.   

The pair were married last year, spent several years together as a couple and had two children together.

Police claim that the father of Herholdt’s third child had also been staying at the house.   

He allegedly shut the children into one of the bedrooms to stop them from witnessing the fight between Herholdt and Mr Murray. 

Herholdt allegedly administered first aid on her husband after he had been stabbed and told her former partner to call an ambulance. 

Mr Murray died from a single stab wound in the driveway outside his house despite the best efforts of paramedics. 

Herholdt was hospitalised after the incident before she was arrested and charged by police.        

She did not apply for bail after appearing at the Pine Rivers Magistrates Court on Friday.

She was remanded in custody until her next court appearance in October.
