25-year old Texas based Nigerian man arrested for stabbing his 30-year old pregnant sister to death

A former University of Texas at San Antonio football player has been arrested and charged in the fatal stabbing of his sister at a home north of Austin.

The Travis County sheriff´s office says 25-year-old Michael Egwuagu who is originally from Nigeria was charged with murder in the Friday killing of his sister, 30, in Pflugerville.

The sheriff´s office has not yet released the name of his sister, who authorities say was stabbed multiple times. She died at the scene.

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Kristen Dark says authorities were told the victim was pregnant but they are waiting on an autopsy to confirm that.

Neighbor Ben Nguyen told The Statesman that Egwuagu's hands and feet were covered in blood following the fatal stabbing around 5pm Friday. He was arrested at the scene.

Nguyen said: 'It's not something we expected to happen here. They were good people.'

Another neighbor Liskenia Tena added: 'This is a quiet neighborhood. She and her husband were very nice. They were very quiet.'

Egwuagu played safety at UTSA from 2013-16.
