Pregnant teen accused of killing boyfriend

March 7, 2009 5:45:02 PM PST
Mount Vernon police say a pregnant 17-year-old has stabbed and killed the boyfriend whose baby she's carrying. Brittany Myers was being held without bail Saturday after being arrested on a manslaughter charge in Tiquan Maddox's death.

Mount Vernon Police Commissioner David Chong says police found the 23-year-old Maddox stabbed in the chest at a home on South Columbus Avenue Friday evening. Police believe he was attacked with a kitchen knife but are still investigating the circumstances.

No telephone number could be found for Myers, and police don't know whether she has a lawyer. Chong says she may have run away from a group home.

The commissioner says Myers is five months pregnant with Maddox' child.
