    "Police have launched a homicide investigation after a woman died on a footpath at the rear of an inner Sydney apartment complex on Monday night...

    The circumstances leading up to the woman’s death are unknown, however the Herald has confirmed she had suffered injuries before being found on the concrete outside the 11-floor apartment block. A nearby fence showed signs of significant damage...

    Detectives from the Botany area command and the state crime command's homicide squad have ruled out self harm, and are looking closely at the injuries the woman had suffered before her death... Investigators are believed to be focusing on a man they believe was known to the woman, with police sources confirming on Tuesday morning the death was "definitely" suspicious...

    Police are now speaking to neighbours who told the Herald they heard screaming from a fifth floor on Monday night. "It went on for 10 minutes," said the neighbour who did not want to be named. "It sounded like a man and a woman who knew each other, like painful screaming.""

    Because of the damage at the top of the fence it looks like she fell from a substantial height. And since investigators have rule out self-harm it sounds like she was pushed out the window.

    "A woman has been arrested after her female former lover plunged to her death from the fifth floor of a Sydney apartment building.

    Zixi Wang, 29, was arrested on Tuesday afternoon following a desperate plea by police to help locate her for questioning over the death of another woman at an inner city apartment block.

    Police said Ms Wang was wanted over the death of Shuyu Zhou, 23, who was found dead on Monday night, about 9pm...

    It is understood Ms Wang left the unit block in the a white Mercedes Benz belonging to the dead woman, in the hours after the incident.

    A member of the public spotted Ms Wang at Sea Cliff Bridge, north of Wollongong, about 3pm on Tuesday and contacted police. She was arrested a short time later. "

    ‘A Sydney woman [Zixi Wang] will face court charged with murder on Wednesday after the death of her ex-girlfriend outside her Zetland apartment on Monday evening.’

    ‘[She] appeared in Wollongong Local Court on Wednesday where she did not apply for bail. It was formally refused.

    Her solicitor Kevin Zhu told the court he was "unable to obtain instructions" from Ms Wang.

    "I had a short meeting with her," he said.

    "She was in a very bad condition physically and mentally, she was terrified and distressed and hasn't slept for three days."

    Ms Wang will appear in a Sydney court in August.’

    Anyone know what the situation is about getting a mental evaluation of her?

    It was reported in the SMH article (above) that:

    Ms Wang was arrested and taken to hospital, then conveyed to Wollongong police station on Tuesday where she was charged with murder and stealing Ms Zhou's car.’

    So she must have received some medical/psychiatric treatment. I’m pretty sure the magistrate would have ordered an evaluation of her mental state when she appeared in court on Wednesday, if it was necessary.
