THE BRONX -

A woman remains hospitalized Wednesday after police say her fiancé stabbed her with a knife killing a fetus she was carrying.

Oscar Alvarez, 30, is accused of stabbing Livia Abreu, 30, multiple times in the torso after a dispute.

Alvarez surrendered to police hours after the attack and appeared in court Tuesday.

Police say after he stabbed Abreu multiple times, Alvarez refused to let her leave the home they shared together for at least 30-minutes.

Abreu miscarried the 26-week-old fetus as a result of the stabbing.

He is expected back in court Friday and faces murder and assault charges as well as criminal possession of a weapon charges.
