The husband of a woman who was found bashed to death in her home has been charged with her murder. 

Sabah Hafiz, 23, was found suffering from multiple injuries in her Wentworthville home, in Sydney's western suburbs, early Wednesday. 

Despite desperate attempts to save her she died at the scene.

Police launched a search for her husband Adam Cureton, 24, who was arrested 32 hours later at a home in the beachside suburb of Maroubra on Thursday morning.

He was taken to Maroubra Police Station before being taken to Prince of Wales Hospital where he was kept under police guard for observation.

Cureton is expected to appear in the Parramatta Local Court on Friday over her death.
