A Lousiana man is accusing of stabbing his pregnant wife in the stomach and cutting out her unborn baby.
Deputies were called to the couple's home near Walker, Louisiana, Tuesday morning.
The baby died in the attack. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital where she remains in stable condition.
Jeffery Reynolds is charged with first degree feticide and second degree attempted murder.
At this time, there is no known motive for the attack.
"I've seen crime scenes before but thus was a very challenging crime scene," said Jason Ard, Sheriff of Livington Parish.
"They all are, but this one was one that I, I don't think I've ever seen anything like this."
Police said the couple has at least one other child together.
