EARLIER: Queensland police are seeking the extradition of a 35-year-old South Australian man charged with the stabbing of 21-year-old Kuttabul woman Teagan Moore.
Police have issued a warrant for the man for allegedly attempting to murder Moore, and intending to cause serious harm to her 23-year-old fiance Jake Burgess.
Detective Superintendent Rob Weir said police believed the man drove a car hired from Mackay Airport to a residence on Sorensens Rd, Kuttabul in the early hours of December 28.
He said after a "short exchange" with Burgess outside his home, the man allegedly stabbed him in the torso.
The man then allegedly entered the home, stabbed Moore twice while she was holding her 10-month-old baby, and fled the scene.
Later in the day he was arrested at Adelaide Airport.
Det Supt Weir said Ms Moore suffered life-threatening injuries, but following surgery her condition had improved.
She was flown to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital around 6pm on Monday.
At the time of printing Mr Burgess and his son were in stable conditions at Mackay Base Hospital.
On being contacted by the Daily Mercury, Burgess said contrary to media reports his son had not been injured.
"My child wasn't harmed nor dropped," he said.
Det Supt Weir said the relationship between the alleged attacker and the couple was unclear, but that they knew each other.
"It's important to recognise the fact that they were known to one another, it wasn't a random act," he said.
Investigations continue, with the accused likely to face an Adelaide court for extradition in the next few days.
He is expected to appear in the Mackay Magistrate's Court in January.
On Monday, a GoFundMe webpage was set up to raise funds for the family.
"Wanting to raise money to help this young family out with medical expenses and other expenses that may pop up as they are all unable to work due to injuries," read the description on the page.
At the time of printing the fundraiser had attracted $1295 in donations.
