A woman who was eight months pregnant has been found stabbed to death a day before her wedding.

Vindalee Smith was discovered inside the basement of her home in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York, on Saturday morning.

It is unclear how long the mother-of-four had been dead before her body was discovered by the authorities.

She had been stabbed in the neck. Her unborn child did not survive.

The 38-year-old was due to be married on Sunday.

She had been living at the apartment for a few weeks while her four other children stayed with family friends.

Friends told the New York Post she was an active member of the New Dimension Seventh Day Adventist Church.

Pastor Ferron Francis told the newspaper: "She was a jovial person.

"She was a very dedicated and caring person. She was a mother and father to her children and was very protective and supportive of them."

Police are investigating the killing.
