A man accused of murdering his pregnant wife and setting their apartment on fire is facing new charges.

Patrick Antoine, 39, now faces a charge of assaulting a pregnant woman resulting in the termination of a pregnancy.

Antoine told police he stabbed his wife earlier this month because she was a “voodoo priestess” who cast spells on him.

He has already been charged with murder and arson.

He entered a not guilty plea in court on Monday.
