Texas deputies say a doorbell digital camera recorded an ex-college soccer participant confessing to killing his pregnant sister with a knife, based on reviews.
Michael Egwuagu, 25, has been accused of killing his 32-year-old sister Jennifer Chima Ebichi on Friday in Pflugerville.
“I killed Jennifer,” the doorbell digital camera recorded Egwuagu as saying as he left his sister’s residence moments after the homicide, the Austin American-Statesman reported Sunday, citing the arrest affidavit.
Witnesses instructed police they heard Egwuagu utter these phrases once they noticed him leaving the home with a smile on his face and a bloody kitchen knife in his hand, KEYE-TV reported.
The witnesses instructed police they’d heard Egwuagu and his sister yelling and screaming, the station reported.
An post-mortem confirmed Ebichi was about three months pregnant. Officers mentioned she was stabbed a number of occasions.
“Efforts had been made to save lots of her life and the lifetime of the reported unborn little one however finally these efforts had been unsuccessful,” Kristen Darkish, a spokeswoman with the Travis County Sheriff’s Workplace, instructed reporters.
Egwuagu performed soccer for the College of Texas at San Antonio for 3 years.
He was jailed on $500,000 bond.
