MINNEAPOLIS (WLS) -- A Chicago-area man is being held on suspicion that he stabbed his pregnant wife to death in Minnesota.

Yevgeny Savenok, 30, is originally from Wheaton but is being held in Minneapolis on a previous domestic violence charge.

He had the couple's two young children with him when he surrendered to police. The children have been placed with relatives.
