A woman has died after an incident involving a knife at a Hobart home.

A man, 60, is in custody after the 52-year-old woman’s death in Royal Hobart Hospital, where she was taken after the incident.

Police responding to reports of a woman being injured at a home in Mornington found her in a serious condition with upper body injuries.

Two teenagers were at the residence when the incident occurred, as well as the arrested man, Tasmania Police said in a statement.
