Man charged in newborn’s death, stabbing of mother
A Montreal man was charged Tuesday with the first-degree murder of a newborn as well as seven other counts, including attempted murder in the stabbing of the pregnant mother. Sofiane Ghazi, 37, allegedly stabbed his eight-month pregnant partner early Monday in a residence. The woman was still recovering Tuesday, but the baby died in hospital shortly after being delivered by emergency C-section following the attack. Prosecutor Anne Aube says a person can be charged with a homicide by causing injury to a child before or during its birth, which results in the child’s death after becoming a human being.
