IOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) — More details are emerging about the stabbing of a pregnant Sioux City woman and the ex-boyfriend charged with the crime.

Court documents allege that 20-year-old Thomas Rausch, Jr. knew the victim was pregnant and was out to kill her, and states that he wanted to kill the victim in hopes of killing the fetus.

Kasandra Smith, 20, called 911 Monday morning from the Morningside home the two had shared and told authorities she had been stabbed multiple times.

Court documents say Rausch had gone to the home at 1807 South Hennipen to get his things, when he pulled a knife from his pocket, walked up behind Smith and cut her throat.

Authorities say Rausch then stabbed Smith repeatedly, causing six serious knife wounds.

She remains hospitalized at Mercy Medical Center.

Her condition and that of her unborn baby are not being released at her family’s request.

Rausch is in the Woodbury County Jail, charged with attempted murder and “non-consensual termination of pregnancy.”

His bond is set at half-a-million dollars.

Michael Robie, 19, was the last of the four to be sentenced for the murder of Christopher Gray, 25, of Groton, Vt., who was lured to a girl’s home on the pretext of watching movies and then stabbed more than 30 times as he stood by a bonfire.

Robie, who was in jail on unrelated charges at the time, didn’t participate in the stabbing but plotted it beforehand with girlfriend Amber Talbot and the other two, their conversations captured on tape-recorded telephone calls from Robie’s jail cell.

“You called the shots from the jail,” said Gray’s aunt, Shirley Kingsbury, sobbing as she berated Robie in court Thursday. “You could’ve stopped this violent crime at any time, and you deliberately chose not to. You let them do your dirty work.”

The plot took shape after Talbot — who worked in the Wal-Mart in nearby Woodsville — told Robie that Gray had been making passes at her at work, following her around and telling her she was cute. Gray, who had a speech impediment and low IQ and was considered developmentally disabled, also told suspect Timothy Smith he liked her …
