ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — A baby was delivered in a Florida hospital from a woman who police say was shot and killed by her husband.

The baby was in critical condition after delivery. Kamion Kemarley Spencer called 911 to report the shooting and he was arrested several hours later.

Police charged him with manslaughter. He was being held in Pinellas County Jail on Saturday. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
