'Scared' pregnant woman found murdered after cops blow off frantic 911 call

She was reportedly found at the bottom of a stairwell, and authorities suspect her husband, Barry Wells, strangled her and pushed her down the stairs.

Barry Wells was arrested Wednesday night and questioned by police.

It was then, shortly before 10 a.m., that NY police officers found the pregnant 22-year-old's dead body at the bottom of a basement staircase, WCBS reported, but it wasn't the first time someone had called NYPD wondering what might be happening inside that Crown Heights home in Brooklyn, N.Y.

WABC reported that part of the investigation is looking into whether the 911 dispatcher who took the call gave the responding officers complete information about the initial report.

Police say Wells was found with bruising on her neck and head and believe her death is related to a domestic incident involving her husband, Barry.

Police also found her 2-year-old daughter left unharmed but crying at the scene.
