A man charged with domestic violence-related murder after the stabbing death of a young mother has had his case mentioned in court.

The woman, named in media reports as mother-of-four Heather Ball, was found on a footpath with stab wounds on Wednesday night after emergency services were called to a unit complex on Short Street at Caboolture, north of Brisbane.

Police allege the 27-year-old woman and a man were involved in an altercation about 8.30pm before she was stabbed.

The man is alleged to have run to a vehicle that was tracked by authorities to the Sunshine Coast before crashing into a police vehicle on the Bruce Highway.

The Holden Commodore was allegedly travelling at high speeds and went through a red light.

Two male officers, a senior constable and a sergeant, sustained minor injuries in the crash.

Aaron Robert Plant, 29, had his case mentioned in Caboolture Magistrates Court on Friday.

He is charged with one count of domestic violence-related murder, two counts of attempted murder, two counts of dangerous driving, one count of evading police and one count of contravening a domestic violence order.

His case is due for mention in the same court on July 13.

Plant was unable to apply for bail due to the serious nature of the charge.
