BEIJING (AP) — Chinese authorities say they have arrested a man they suspect fatally stabbed his pregnant wife and six of her relatives, including two elderly grandparents and two young nieces. Police in China's northwest autonomous region of Ningxia say 24-year-old Ma Yongdong was captured Friday night. State media say the suspect had quarreled Monday with his wife, Lan Xiaohong, who was six months pregnant. They say he found her later that day at her parents' home in a village in Pengyang county, and that he clashed with his in-laws before killing all seven victims with a knife. The victims were Lan, her parents, grandparents and two nieces — ages 4 and 1½. Ningxia police say on their official microblog that Ma has admitted to the homicides.
