Man Stabs Pregnant Girlfriend 20-30Times On The Day She Was To Give Birth

Redd is to be sentenced for the woman’s murder on Nov. 22. He faces 25 years to life in prison.

A Queens man was convicted Thursday of stabbing his pregnant girlfriend and her fetus to death on the day she was to have given birth a baby boy.
Cops previously said Derrick Redd, 38, of Jamaica admitted that he 'hadn’t believed the child was his and urged Niasha Delain, 25, to have an abortion.
Delain, a bank teller, was stabbed 20 to 30 times in her stomach and torso on Oct. 25, 2008, in her South Ozone Park apartment, according to the Queens district attorney’s office.
The fetus was stabbed five times .
Delain’s family embraced and cried when they heard the jury’s verdict.
“I feel like my daughter and grandson can rest in peace,” said Delain’s mother, Towanda Wimms, 45, of Far Rockaway, who discovered her daughter’s bloody body. “This animal needs to be off the streets.”
Wimms has launched a campaign to make it a crime to kill a fetus during a homicide.
