LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is accused of trying to kill a pregnant woman last summer. 

According to an arrest report, 27-year-old Quincy Blackmon refused to let the mother of his unborn child leave when she was visiting him in August of 2017. Police say Blackmon became angry during the visit, and things escalated when she tried to leave.

Blackmon is accused of choking her several times until she lost consciousness. The victim was 36 weeks pregnant at the time. 

Police say Blackmon told the victim the next time he choked her, he wasn't going to stop until she was dead. 

Blackmon is charged with attempted murder, assault and unlawful imprisonment. He is due back in court later this month.
