A MAN has been charged with murder over the stabbing death of a man in Sydney's south-west, which is alleged to have stemmed from a noise complaint.

He was refused bail and is expected to appear at Burwood Local Court today.

Emergency services were called to Garrong Road at Lakemba about 12:30am on Sunday and found a 45-year-old man with stab wounds to his neck.

Police said the victim was stabbed with a broken bottle outside his unit block in front of his father, who has a hearing impairment.
