Aaron Dudley Wiki – Aaron Dudley Bio
Aaron Dudley was arrested in Fresno, California, on Tuesday on two counts of murder for allegedly stabbing to death his pregnant sister and her unborn baby.
A California man has been arrested for allegedly stabbing his pregnant sister to death and setting her body on fire just days after her baby shower, police said.
The Fresno Police Department announced Wednesday the arrest of Aaron Dudley, 41, for the murders of N’kya Rebecca Logan, 26, and her unborn child in Fresno.
A maintenance crew discovered Logan’s burning body Tuesday afternoon near an apartment complex in the 4400 block of North Cornelia Street, ABC30 reported.
Aaron Dudley is 41 years old.
Brother Stabbed Pregnant Sister to Death & Arrested
A witness told police who were called to the scene that they observed a suspicious person pushing a city dumpster along an unpaved road near the housing complex and then setting its contents on fire.
Surveillance video from the area was said to have captured Dudley pushing the dumpster on the day of the incident, police said.
Dudley was arrested while trying to flee the West Fresno home he shared with his sister and his mother while officers were executing a search warrant there.
Authorities said Logan was 36 weeks pregnant and held his baby shower on Dec. 11, just two days before his slaying, which Fresno Police Chief Paco Balderrama described as “horrifying.”
Balderrama said that Logan planned to name his son Noah. The child did not survive after being stabbed multiple times inside the womb, according to the chief.
Investigators believe Dudley repeatedly stabbed his younger sister with a sharp weapon, dumped her body in the city dump, wheeled the dumpster four blocks to the dirt road, doused the corpse with gasoline, and set it on fire.
Police did not say what may have motivated the murder, but did reveal that officers were previously called to the brothers’ home on July 28, 2021, when Logan complained that he feared for his safety.
Balderrama said that in that incident, Dudley was deemed a threat to himself and others and was placed on hold for 72 hours.
Dudley now faces two counts of murder because his sister’s unborn baby likely could have survived outside the womb, authorities said.
“It takes a lot of evil, hate,s and planning to stab your own sister multiple times,” Balderrama said at the press conference, adding that he hasn’t stopped thinking about this case since he first found out about it.
