A black former U.S. Marine is accused of attempted murder and conspiracy after he beat his pregnant wife
African-American Brian Corder, 26, from Northridge, California, is accused of conspiring to kill his wife who was four months pregnant when she was savagely beaten. Corder planned the attack with fellow African-Americans Stephon Crutchfield, 21, and girlfriend Fredericka Carmouche. They used frying pans and lamps to make it look like a break in. Corder, Carmouche and Crutchfield have all been charged with conspiracy and attempted murder. They are being held on $1 million bond.
