A Melbourne man accused of killing his brother and stabbing his mother has been charged with murder and attempted murder.

A manhunt had been launched after emergency services attended a home on Willoughby St, Reservoir in Melbourne’s north just after 8am following reports someone had been assaulted with a knife.

The mother was rushed to Royal Melbourne Hospital with serious injuries to her upper body. Her son was unable to be saved.
