The police arrested the ex-boyfriend of one of the victims of a brutal ax attack on Saturday that left a woman dead and another fighting for her life.

Jerry Brown, 34, has been charged with murder and attempted murder after allegedly chopping up his girlfriend, Angela Valle, and her pregnant girlfriend Savannah Rivera, with an axe in an apartment building in Brooklyn, New York.

Police found Rivera, who also has a three-year-old son, partially decapitated, with her fingers cut of at the gruesome scene early Saturday morning. Valle, 21, called an Uber to take her to the hospital after the attack left her with cuts to her head, the chest, the arms, the belly and the throat, the New York Post reports. The Uber driver then called 911 and Valle, 21, height medics for the loss of the consciousness that her boyfriend was the attacker and that her four year old daughter Aliana was in the room next to the scene of the crime.

The girl was found asleep and unharmed. She is now with a family as they wait with Valle at the Elmhurst Hospital Center and hope that she pulls through out the vicious attack.

Brown said to suffer from mental health problems and told Pix 11 before they are arrested that he is schizophrenic, manic depressive and paranoid. He said that he tried to get medication from a hospital, and that he did not know of the attack. When he heard that his girlfriend was fighting for her life, he began to cry while speaking with journalists on the phone.

Brown reportedly bought the ax on a Florama Hardware store, about two weeks ago, employees said. She added that he asked the 39-year-old worker Udi Amrussi if he could sharpen the ax for him, but the man refused.
