Pregnant woman and unborn child murdered
MISSOURI CITY, Texas (AP) - A 27-year-old suburban Houston woman and her unborn son are both dead after the 8½-months-pregnant woman was stabbed repeatedly.
A police statement says Leiah Jackson and her boyfriend lived in a Missouri City duplex next door to her mother, who lives in the other half of the building. Police say the mother answered a pounding at her front door before dawn Sunday and found her daughter bleeding profusely.
She was airlifted to a Houston hospital, where both she and her unborn child died. Police also say they believe a man found shot to death about midday Sunday may have had ties to Jackson's death, but they haven't elaborated.
