PINE BLUFF (KATV) - A Jefferson County man who reportedly admitted to killing his wife was charged with murder count Thursday because his wife was pregnant.

George Cage, 31, reportedly called Jefferson County deputies and told them he killed his wife, Mendi Bell, on Saturday in the 9700 block of Huntley Trail. The State Crime Lab confirmed Thursday that Bell was 13 weeks pregnant.

Investigators told Channel 7 News Bell's son was inside the home at the time of the murder and saw it happen.
