Livingston Parish, LA (WAFB/CNN) - A husband is accusing of stabbing his pregnant wife in the stomach and cutting out her unborn baby.
Deputies were called out to the couple's home near Walker, Louisiana, Tuesday morning.
The baby died in the attack and the woman was taken to a nearby hospital where she remains in stable condition.
Police have charged the husband, Jeffery Reynolds, 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 this was a very challenging crime scene. They all are, but this one was one that I, I don't think I've ever seen anything like this," said Sheriff Jason Ard.
Police say the couple has at least one other child together and that child is currently with relatives.
