    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Florida man fatally shot his pregnant wife and dumped her body in a trash bin.

    A Fort Lauderdale police news release says 20-year-old Martine Bernard's body was found early Tuesday morning in an alley behind the home she shared with her husband, 22-year-old Cassandritz Blanc. Bernard was six months pregnant.

    Blanc is charged with first-degree murder for his wife's death. He's being held without bond and is also suspected in her father's killing. Hollywood police say 68-year-old Roosevelt Bernard was found fatally shot in the nearby city on Monday.

    An arrest report says Blanc told investigators he shot his wife in the head June 4 because she disrespected him. He told police he tried to dismember her body to make it easier to dispose.
