A 24-year-old pregnant woman has been arrested for stabbing her boyfriend to death in a suspected love-triangle row over who the baby’s dad is.
According to reports, 34-year-old Tihomir Drinkov-Tishi was killed in front his girlfriend’s home in Kostenets in the western Bulgarian province of Sofia.
Local media said that the young woman, who is two months pregnant, was with her lover, identified as Stelo, when her boyfriend confronted her during a party she was throwing at her house.
A fight between Drinkov-Tishi and the lover broke out in the street, believed to be about who is the father of her unborn baby.
According to the district prosecutor’s office, the 24-year-old woman, identified as Daniela Ivanova, killed Drinkov-Tishi during the brawl between the two men outside her home.
Reports said that her lover Stelo was initially suspected of stabbing the victim, but following a preliminary investigation it is believed that Ivanova is culpable.
During the preliminary investigation the police reportedly found the murder weapon which had been hidden by the perpetrator.
One neighbour told local media: “[The victim] was a nice, quiet man, one of the good ones.
“Daniella used drugs and was often aggressive to others. She used to steal from her mother and sister. I always suspected something bad would happen one day.”
The pregnant suspect is currently being held in custody for 72 hours as the authorities continue their investigation.
