Alleged Charnwood murder victim named as Frankie Victor Prineas


The family of a man who died after being stabbed in Charnwood on Saturday have issued a statement paying tribute to their son.

Frankie Victor Prineas died in the early hours of Saturday morning. He was 27.

The statement from his father, Victor Prineas, was issued by ACT Policing.

“Frankie was a son that any parent would have been extremely proud of,” Victor Prineas said.

“We have attended the first day in court where we hope, ultimately, Frankie will get the justice he deserves.”

Victor Prineas and his wife thanked their family and friends for their support.

“My wife and I would like to thank our entire family and our beautiful friends who are here for us in this most difficult time,” he said.

“Losing a child is not something any parent should go through and I would not wish this pain on anyone.

“We ask that you respect our privacy at this time as we grieve for Frankie.”

Police have charged 26-year-old Jayscen Anthony Newby with murder over the incident.

Mr Newby fronted court on Monday, where he did not enter a plea and did not apply for bail.

He will remain behind bars until his next court appearance in March.

Police have previously said they responded to reports of a disturbance at the Silver Gums townhouse complex in Charnwood, about 1.30am on Saturday.

They found a 27-year-old man with significant stab wounds at the house. He was taken to hospital, but died a short time later.

Officers said they did an “extensive search” around North Canberra for the 26-year-old man suspected of being involved in the man’s murder.

Mr Newby handed himself into Canberra City Police Station about 4.30pm on Saturday, police said.

Prosecutor Keegan Lee told the court he was seeking a longer than usual period before Mr Newby’s next court appearance. Police had to complete their investigations into the alleged murder, he said.
