In the lead-up to her violent death, a Sydney hairdresser known to friends as Nasrin Abek, 35, was allegedly stalked by her husband.

And on Wednesday he allegedly finally caught up with her and killed her inside their Potts Point unit.

Fairfax Media understands Amir Darbanou, 42, was growing increasingly angry with Ms Abek, and believed she had been unfaithful.

Ms Abek and Mr Darbanou were originally from Iran but had been living in Australia on bridging visas for the past four years, police said.

It is alleged that Ms Abek’s father received a worrying phone call from Mr Darbanou on Wednesday.

Ms Abek’s father then alerted police with concerns for his daughter’s welfare.

On Thursday morning, police attended the couple’s unit in St Neot Avenue, where they found Ms Abek’s body with multiple stab wounds.

On Friday, Mr Darbanou appeared briefly before Central Local Court, charged with one count of murder.
