WALKER, LA (WAFB) -

The man accused of brutally attacking his pregnant wife and killing their unborn child is now in custody with no bond.

Jeffery Reynolds of Walker appeared before a judge Monday on a motion to revoke his bond. His bond was originally set at $500,000. The judge revoked the bond after graphic testimony.

In his last court appearance, Reynolds blamed synthetic drugs for the attack. He once again blamed the substances for the deadly attack.

"I love my wife and son and thank the people that gave her donations and helped her," Reynolds said after walking out of the courthouse. "I don't remember anything I did. I hope the state does away with synthetic marijuana completely."

He is charged with first-degree feticide and second-degree attempted murder. His next court appearance is scheduled for April 8. A trial date has not been set.

The Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office said Reynolds attacked his wife, Paula, 28, with a kitchen knife at their Walker, LA home on Oct. 23, 2012.

Investigators said he stabbed her in the abdomen and cut their baby out of her. She survived the attack.

A toxicology test was run on Reynolds, but at last report, the results had not been sent back to authorities.
