Man Charged After Fatally Stabbing Heavily Pregnant Sister and Allegedly Setting Her Body On Fire Days Before Baby Shower, Reports Say
A man from California has been taken into custody in connection to the death of his pregnant sister and her unborn son. 41-year-old Aaron Dudley reportedly killed his pregnant 26-year-old sister, N’kya Rebecca Logan, by stabbing her and setting her body on fire merely days following her baby shower.

Dudley now faces two counts of murder.
