NEW YORK -- Police and witnesses say a woman who was eight months pregnant has been found stabbed to death inside her New York home a day before her wedding.

Vindalee Smith was found inside her basement in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn on Saturday morning.

No weapon was found and there was no sign of forced entry.

The 38-year-old had been stabbed in the neck. It's not clear how long she had been dead before authorities found her.

Her baby did not survive.

Witnesses told the New York Post that Smith was supposed to be married on Sunday and that she had been living at the apartment for a few weeks while her four other children stayed with family friends.

Police were looking for suspects.
