Police say 35-year-old April Haskell, who was fatally stabbed by her boyfriend on Wednesday night, was expecting the couple's third child.

OLD TOWN, Maine (AP) _ The Maine state medical examiner's office says the autopsy of an Old Town woman shows she died of multiple stab wounds and confirms that she was pregnant.

Police say 35-year-old April Haskell was fatally stabbed by her boyfriend on Wednesday night. A state trooper responded to the couple's apartment and shot and killed the boyfriend, identified as 28-year-old Christopher Ouellette.

An autopsy Thursday determined that Ouellette died of a single gunshot wound to the head.

The couple had children ages 2 and 4. They were in the apartment, but unharmed.

Police say the couple had been together about six years and Haskell was a housekeeper at a Bangor hotel.

The trooper who shot Ouellette, 15-year veteran Barry Meserve, has been placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.
