The wife of the man accused of killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend and her seven-year-old son says he's "not capable" of such a thing.

Police say Stephen Barbee has confessed to suffocating Lisa Underwood and her son.

But Barbee's wife of two months tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that's "impossible." And she tells the Dallas Morning News that he's "an angel," and the "sweetest thing in the world."

Trish Barbee says her husband told her that he went to Underwood's home to discuss her pregnancy but that Underwood started arguing and hitting him. Underwood was seven months pregnant with Stephen Barbee's child.

Police say they "wouldn't expect any other response from an accused killer's wife."
