OCALA, Fla. -

Authorities say a pregnant Ocala woman who was stabbed more than 30 times is recovering in a hospital.

Police say 59-year-old Samuel Roy Cone II was charged Tuesday with attempted murder after stabbing 40-year-old Jill Feingold.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports Feingold underwent surgery in Ocala after the Monday attack. She was then transferred to Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville where she and the unborn baby are listed in critical condition. She is 22 weeks pregnant.

Police say Cone is the uncle of Feingold's husband. Officers took Cone into custody outside the home, where he told police he was sorry but "they took all I had."

Ocala police Det. Mat Steckman says the attack apparently stems from a dispute over who will inherit Cone's mother's estate.
