This murder is like something from a Wes Craven horror film as Corey Bernard Moss stabbed Rachel Poole during a video chat with her husband, a soldier stationed in Asia.

Justin Poole is stationed overseas and had to witness the brutal attack on his wife who was nine-months pregnant.

Moss, age 19, stabbed the woman from behind with a stainless steel knife requiring Poole, age 31, to be rushed to the hospital. The couple’s daughter, Isabella, was born and is reportedly doing well.

Police Det. Mike Baranyay told CNN that the woman recognized her attacker and repeatedly screamed his name to her husband.

Moss allegedly told investigators that the victim owed him money for vehicle repairs. He was charged with criminal attempted capital murder.

On Facebook Saturday, Justin Poole showed pictures of his newborn daughter and recovering wife. On one photo of his wife, he wrote: “My wife fought back so that her daughter could live. But she cannot see out of her eye still at all. And can’t see or hold her baby until she recovers.”

Friends of the Poole family have started a fundraising effort to raise funds for the family.
