Police described the scene as “gruesome” when they discovered the severely stabbed and burned body of Margarette Mady, a 37-year-old pregnant Connecticut woman.
Patrick Antoine, 39, confessed to murdering his 8-months-pregnant wife and committing arson when he turned himself into Norwich Police on Thursday morning. Family told investigators Mady was expecting her third child at the time of her death, NBC Connecticut reports.
Police found Mady unconscious in the burning home and pronounced her dead at the scene. Officials said the fire “appeared” to be set intentionally and was contained to one room, then spread to the second floor of the apartment building.
Antoine faces first-degree murder and arson charges. His bond was set at $1 million.
