Pennsylvania Man Kills Pregnant Wife With Sword; Cites ‘Hybrid Human Threat’

A Pennsylvania man charged with killing his pregnant wife with a sword told investigators he had to do so to save the world according to reports.

John D. Ziegler III’s statements were revealed by investigators’ testimony during his preliminary hearing last week.

Ziegler told investigators he had to destroy his wife Diana and their unborn child because Diana was the “Queen Bee” of a hybrid human race who planned to take over the world. While he has stated he was sorry for what he did, he also said it had to be done to save humanity.

Ziegler had called 911 right after the murder and waited at the scene for emergency responders to arrive. He was detained without incident and the couple’s older child, a toddler who was also at the scene, was unharmed and taken in by York County Children, Youth and Families, according to police.

Ziegler will stand trial and his formal arraignment is set for April 21.
