WACO -- It was the last thing Anthony Toliver expected to witness when he came home.

An argument between his neighbors that turned deadly.

"Next door, there was, I heard a lady screaming and yelling. and I called 911 and when the police got here about five or ten minutes and I saw a lady come outside and fall right there by the police car and then they said she had been stabbed," said Toliver.

She wasn't the only victim.

"She was holding a little baby with her. I saw his intestines was coming out of his stomach," said Toliver. 

When police arrived to the apartment in the 2400 block of Washington the man locked the door and turned the knife on himself.

Neighbors said the couple had only been living here about two to three weeks, but already they could tell the man was very possessive over the woman.

"The guy seemed like he was a little, you know, quiet and didn't really want to speak to much," said Toliver.

Tonight the mother and her child are recovering at Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center.

Police are not releasing any names but for the neighbors who lived around this couple, it's a nightmare that's hard to shake.

"Bad. I feel real bad about it. Just sad, just real sad. I'm trying to enjoy the day but its just real sad on their part I really hope and pray that they'll be okay," said Toliver.
