A man and woman have been charged with murder after the death of a former volunteer rural firefighter from Queensland's Fraser Coast.
Mark Carson, 58, died from a severe wound after an alleged altercation in Pacific Haven on April 3.
The 40-year-old woman and 42-year-old man were taken into custody after a search warrant was executed at a Maryborough home on Tuesday morning.
"The arrests follow an exhaustive investigation involving detectives from our local Criminal Investigation Branch in partnership with the Homicide Squad," Detective Senior Sergeant David Harbison said.
"We hope today's arrests bring some closure to Mark Carson's family."
The pair have been charged with one count of murder each and are expected to face Maryborough Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
Investigators are also urging a member of the public who contacted Crime Stoppers on April 6 to get in touch again, saying the information they provided is important.
