14 Sep 2017 9:23am

A man has died and another man arrested following a fatal stabbing at Tungkillo, near Mount Pleasant in the Adelaide Hills last night.

Police and paramedics responded to reports of a serious assault on Adelaide Road just before 10.30pm on Wednesday 13 September.

When patrols arrived, they located a man with a stab wound lying unconscious in the driveway of the premises. Attempts were made to resuscitate the 51-year-old Tungkillo man but sadly he died at the scene.

A 52-year-old man from Tungkillo has been arrested and charged with murder. He has been refused police bail and will appear via video link at Adelaide Magistrates Court today. 

This is not a random incident, both parties are known to each other.
