A pregnant woman is recovering after the father of her unborn child tried to kill her Saturday by punching and stabbing her 12 times.
Pregnant Woman Stabbed 12 Times By Baby Daddy
Via Orlando Sentinel reports:
Upset that his girlfriend of 18 months no longer wanted to move in with him, 43-year-old Frank R. Defulgentis allegedly attacked her with a black-handled steak knife at 3:30 a.m. Saturday, according to an arrest report from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputy William Dover responded to the Winder Trail home in the Union Park neighborhood to find Defulgentis chasing after his girlfriend, who was running down the driveway wearing only a shirt covered and dripping in blood.
The woman was screaming for help while Defulgentis ran after her, prompting the deputy to hold the man at gunpoint until he could arrest him, the report said.
“I wasn’t trying to kill her,” Defulgentis told the deputy.
His girlfriend, who is six months pregnant, was taken to the Orlando Regional Medical Center, where doctors said she had 12 stab wounds on her head, face and arms with her deepest wound on her forehead.
The woman was also treated for a broken arm, the report said.
She is expected to recover from the attack.
Defulgentis was booked into the Orange County Jail on attempted first-degree murder with a weapon.
How do you stab someone 12 times and say you’re weren’t trying to kill them? Were those just some love stabs? SMH!!!!
