Ms Nahu was treated by paramedics at the scene on Grahame Avenue in Glenfield but died shortly after police were called.
Fredes was arrested at the same house soon after her death and taken to Campbelltown Police Station, and later charged with murder.
Her neighbour Mattie said the father of the two primary school-aged children only recently moved back into the family home.
‘She was a friend of mine, she was beautiful, she was the first person who we knew when we moved into the area,’ she told reporters.
‘[She had] beautiful kids… everyone knew her. She’s just a beautiful person. It’s left two kids motherless
‘It’s not fair. There’s two babies who are not going to grow up without their mum.’
Ms Nahu’s cousin said the family was ‘in distress and disbelief’ and too upset to talk about her death.

A crime scene was established at the home and detectives were investigating.
Ms Nahu young children was the seventh woman to be brutally murdered around Australia in just the past eight days.
On average, a woman is murdered every week in Australia by their current or former partner, and one in three women have experienced physical violence carried out by a man.
