*I could not find a second source for this story, but this story was way too absurd to not write about*

Prosecutors have charged a New York City man with stabbing his girlfriend to death on the day she was due to give birth (The Star Tribune).

Derrick Redd was held without bail Tuesday after pleading not guilty to second-degree murder and second-degree abortional act. He faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors say Redd repeatedly stabbed Niasha Delain at her home on Oct. 25. The attack included six stab wounds to the fetus (The Star Tribune).

Prosecutors said test results are pending to determine whether Redd would have been the father.
