A 44-year-old woman has been charged with two counts of murder over a double stabbing in Melbourne.

The woman was covered in blood when she was arrested on a tram and taken to hospital on Thursday, after two men had been found stabbed to death in Brunswick.

She was discharged from hospital on Friday afternoon and interviewed by police before being charged.

Detectives believe that the woman was given a lift from the Brunswick area and dropped near the corner of Lygon and Pigdon Streets in Carlton North around 5.40am that morning.

She was subsequently arrested after she boarded the tram.

The vehicle which dropped her off was a dark colored ute with tool boxes on the rear and a snorkel attached to the driver’s side.

Detectives are appealing for information to identify the vehicle and its driver or for the driver of that vehicle to contact police.

Police said at this time there is nothing to indicate the driver was involved in the incident and that they are being treated as a witness only.

The two victims are a 61-year-old Coburg man, who died en-route to hospital, and a 59-year-old Brunswick man.

The two men and the woman are all believed to be known to each other.

The woman has been reminded to appear in Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on August 29.
