DENHAM SPRINGS - The Livingston Parish man accused of stabbing his wife and cutting their unborn baby from her womb blamed synthetic drugs today during a court hearing.

Jeffrey Reynolds made the comments to reporters as he was being taken away after the hearing.

"I love my wife and son with all my heart and I hope the state will make new laws, enforce laws against synthetic drugs," Reynolds said. "It has ruined my life."

Reynolds is charged with feticide and attempted murder after the incident Oct. 23, 2012. Investigators said he slit his wife's throat, then cut their unborn child out. She survived the stabbing.

Today attorneys agreed to schedule another hearing Feb. 4 where prosecutors will ask Reynolds' bond be revoked. He's currently in jail with a $500,000 bond amount.

News 2's Brittany Weiss will have more on today's hearing and Reynolds' comments at 5 and 6.
