Victoria Police did not say if the woman who died and the suspect knew each other, and they have not yet said who they are.
Although authorities have verified that the 12-year-old girl has been charged with one count of murder, no motivation for the incident is now known.
“She has been remanded to appear before a children’s court at a later date,” stated Victoria Police Media Unit spokesperson Katherine McLeod.
The inquiry is still going strong as of right now.
