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 former UTSA Roadrunners football player Michael Egwuagu was charged with murder Friday for the fatal stabbing of his pregnant sister, Jennifer Chioma Ebichi, in Pflugerville.
The sheriff´s office spokeswoman Kristen Dark said the 32-year-old woman was attacked with a knife.
Travis County police responded to a 911 call at a Pflugerville, Texas, home — just north of Austin, where Ebichi, was found on the kitchen floor with multiple stab wounds around 5 p.m. She died at the scene.
Egwuagu was arrested in connection with the murder shortly after police arrived at the scene.

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, who was from Pflugerville, was being held Saturday in Travis County jail.
He could possibly face more than one murder charge, after police confirmed via autopsy that Ebichi was in her first trimester of pregnancy.
His bond has been set at $500,000.
