A woman has been charged with murder and a man is under police guard over a fatal sword attack on a hip-hop artist in Sydney's inner west.
The 23-year-old woman and 28-year-old man handed themselves in at Newtown Police Station on Monday night, three days after the death in Forest Lodge.
The victim, identified by media as local hip-hop artist Jett McKee, was found with critical head wounds in the middle of Hereford Street and Minogue Crescent on Friday afternoon.
Witnesses said he as bleeding profusely as he staggered down a nearby street and then collapsed after reportedly being slashed with a samurai sword.
The injuries stemmed from a fight at a nearby house, police said.
The woman was refused bail to appear at Newtown Local Court on Tuesday.
The man has been taken to hospital under police guard for treatment for a pre-existing facial injury but is expected to charged once he's discharged.
