WALKER, LA (WAFB) - Pre-trial motions are scheduled to begin for a man accused of attacking his wife and killing their unborn child.

Earlier this year, a judge revoked a $500,000 on Jeffery Reynolds of Walker. He is charged with first-degree feticide and second-degree attempted murder after allegedly attacking Paula Reynolds last October.

A trial date has not been set.

Although police have not released toxicology results, Reynolds has said on camera he was high on synthetic drugs during the attack.

"I love my wife and son and thank the people that gave her donations and helped her," Reynolds said after walking out of the courthouse. "I don't remember anything I did. I hope the state does away with synthetic marijuana completely."

The Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office reported Reynolds attacked his wife with a kitchen knife at their home. Investigators said he stabbed her in the abdomen and cut their baby out of her.
