In Monterey Park, California, a man has been arrested in connection with the death of his pregnant wife following a domestic violence incident: Pregnant Monterey Park woman's death probed as husband arrested.

Last weekend, 41-year-old Hongxin Liu was arrested by sheriff's homicide detectives after a coroner's investigator found suspicious marks on the body of his wife Chenan Bao, who was three months pregnant. Tragic.
Hongxin Liu, 41, was booked on suspicion of murder after his 39-year-old wife, Chenan Bao, died as a result of injuries sustained in a "domestic violence altercation" that occurred about 7 a.m. at the couple's Monterey Park home, according to a statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Monterey Park police and fire officials responded Sunday morning to a report of a death at the couple's home in the 1000 block of Ynez Avenue. They found Bao's body and pronounced her dead at the scene.

Sheriff's homicide detectives were called to the home after a coroner's investigator found suspicious marks on Bao, who authorities said was three months pregnant.
The exact cause of Bao's death has yet to be determined. On top of her death, what really breaks my heart is that the couple had a 2-year-old daughter, who is now in custody of the Department of Child and Family Services. More here: Man Charged in Death of Pregnant Wife in Monterey Park.
