An Australian mother and her three-year-old son have been brutally murdered in their home on the Pacific Island of Kiribati.
Sarah Moses, a Tasmanian local, and her son Jack were found tragically stabbed to death in their home on Saturday in which police are suspecting is a domestic violence incident.
Law enforcement have arrested a man, believed to be an extended family member, over the incident.
Kiribati Police claim the stabbing occurred between 5am and 6am on Saturday.
The 46-year-old had reportedly been working as a public servant her entire career and moved to the country to be the director of the Kiribati Institute of Technology. The organisation is funded by foreign aid programs in Australia.
