The head coach of Australian Football League club Adelaide Crows was murdered at his home early Friday morning, according to a statement released by the South Australian Police.
After being called to a domestic disturbance at around 2 a.m. local time, ambulance crews treated Phil Walsh, 55, for multiple stab wounds but he died at the scene. The crews alerted the police.
His 26-year-old son, who lived with Walsh and his wife, has been charged with murder. A knife, believed to have been used in the attack, was retrieved from the scene.
Walsh’s wife also sustained non-life-threatening injuries and is being treated at the Flinders Medical Centre in the city.
