    Man Charged In Heroin Death of Pregnant Woman and Unborn Child

    The DEA has arrested a man they say gave heroin to a pregnant woman, killing both the woman and her unborn child, NBC News reported.

    Anthony Vita of Virginia Beach, Virginia, faces charges of dealing drugs in the Syracuse, New York, area, and causing the overdose death of 24-year-old Morgan Axe of Camillus, New York, who was five months pregnant when her family found her dead next to a syringe and a bag of heroin last November.

    Axe's iPad revealed messages between the mother-to-be and Vita. The DEA said he told her, "Call me I got the best of it all"  and "They are called the king of torts."

    According to the affidavit the bag of heroin found next to Axe was labeled "king of torts."
