A Queens grand jury indicted a man on murder charges in Queens Supreme Court on Friday for savagely butchering his ex-girlfriend and her unborn child in the doorway of her apartment building.

Anthony Hobson, 48, was charged with second degree murder, criminal possession of a weapon and tampering with evidence for the brutal Feb. 3 slaying where he stabbed his estranged lover, Jennifer Irigoyen, to death as she pleaded for her life, prosecutors said.

Hobson was caught on surveillance video dragging the former real estate agent out of her apartment and viciously plunging a knife into her neck, torso and abdomen, eventually killing her and her 14-week-old unborn child.

“He’s got a knife,” the former real estate agent screamed. “He’s going to kill my baby.”

Hobson is facing life in prison and being held on Rikers Island until he’s due back in court on May 22.
