LAYTON, Utah (AP) _ A man shot and killed his pregnant ex-wife at her office Monday, police said.

Susan C. Macguire, 38, and her fetus died during surgery.

Her former husband, Richard Martin Macguire, 47, was arrested in nearby Riverdale, police said, after a friend persuaded him to give himself up.

The ex-husband, who had been barred by a judge from contacting his former wife, admitted shooting her as she opened the Allstate Insurance office Monday morning, police said.

Police would not say if Macguire had fathered the fetus.

Susan Macguire, who was about four months pregnant, was shot at least twice, in the arm and the abdomen, LDS Hospital spokesman Jess Gomez said.
