Ethiopian Man charged with killing wife on Auburn street is refused bail

A middle-aged man accused of murdering his young wife will remain behind bars after he was refused bail in a Sydney court.

Solomon Hailu Jenbare, 49, appeared briefly before Burwood Local Court on Thursday morning, almost two days after allegedly murdering his 25-year-old wife.

She was found with multiple stab wounds on an Auburn footpath late on Tuesday night and was taken to Westmead Hospital where she died shortly after arriving.

Jenbare was arrested at the scene.

His lawyer did not apply for bail, which was formally refused by Magistrate Christopher Longley.
