HARRISBURG, Ill. (AP) - Prosecutors in southern Illinois have charged an Eldorado (el-doh-RAY-doh) man with murder in the death of his pregnant girlfriend.

Saline County prosecutors said Monday that 56-year-old Rodney Black faces multiple counts in the Friday death of 28-year-old Latisha Reidelberger, also of Eldorado. Court documents state that he stabbed the woman with a knife several times.

Saline County State’s Attorney Michael Henshaw says he filed three counts of first-degree murder and three counts of intentional homicide of an unborn child.

Saline County Coroner Jerry Watson says Reidelberger was pronounced dead at Ferrell Hospital in Eldorado.

Authorities arrested Black on Friday. He is held in the Saline County jail. He did not have a listed home phone number.
