Arianna Goberdhan, 27, of Ajax, was nine months pregnant when she was killed. The accused killer is her husband.

The little girl that was killed with her was named Asaara.

Although CBC reported, ““Police have yet to say whether Baig could be charged in the death of the unborn child or whether his charges could be upgraded,” Canadian law does not allow for any additional charges for the unborn victim.

It is difficult to speculate why CBC and Global National news sources to reported the story in this way.
