Stroud Area Regional Police says officers were called to a Stroudsburg home at about 4:10 p.m. Friday and found 24-year-old Krystle Ann Vasquez dead.

Corporal Richard Wolbert said Saturday that 39-year-old Ruben Velazquez Jr. was charged with criminal homicide and criminal homicide of an unborn child.

Velazquez was taken to Monroe County prison without bail; a number listed in his name was out of service and it was unclear whether he had an attorney.

An autopsy on the victim is scheduled Monday.
