The boyfriend of a pregnant real estate agent was found stabbed to death in the entrance of her apartment building in Queens Sunday morning, has been charged with her murder in New York City.
Anthony Hobson, 48, was charged with murder, tampering with physical evidence, abortion and criminal possession of a weapon in the Sunday slaying of Jennifer Irigoyen, 35, in Queens, the New York Post reported.
Irigoyen, who was about five months pregnant, was taken to Wyckoff Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Her unborn child did not survive either.
On the morning of Feb. 3, Irigoyen’s neighbor Maurice Roman Zereoue says he watched in horror as Irigoyen, who was 5 months pregnant at the time, was savagely dragged down the stairs of the complex.
Police were able to obtain surveillance footage from the building, which show Irigoyen’s killer — who police now claim is Hobson.
“This was a heinous crime,” District Attorney Richard Brown said, according to ABC 7.
A surveillance camera points at the building's entrance potentially giving investigators additional evidence, WCBS 880 radio reported.
Victim: Irigoyen was left in a pool of blood
Irigoyen, listed as an HR manager and licensed real estate salesperson on the website of Crosstown Apartments NYC, specializes in luxury homes in Manhattan and Queens.
