Paul M. Anderson GLENDALE -- Just a few days before she was strangled, Deepti Gupta told her husband that she was expecting their second child. The couple, who had a 2-year-old daughter, had been trying for awhile to have another baby, Deepti's husband, Vijay Gupta, said Friday in an interview. The pediatrician's home pregnancy test turned up positive, but she never got the chance to confirm it with a doctor, he said. Four days later, the Glendale woman's body was found by investigators in the Angeles National Forest Nov. 11. Her co-worker, neonatologist Kevin Paul Anderson, is charged with killing her. After Anderson's first court appearance Nov. 15, his attorney, Michael Abzug, said he would try to convince prosecutors to seek a lower bail for his client.

Alecia Foster PASADENA -- A Pasadena Superior Court Judge denied Friday a request to suppress a taped interview of a man admitting to strangling a colleague and pushing her body off a cliff. Judge Teri Schwartz denied defense attorney Michael Abzug's request to suppress the tape in which Kevin Paul Anderson, 41, is heard telling sheriff's investigators that he had choked colleague Deepti Gupta until she was unconscious. Abzug had argued for suppression of the tape on the grounds that his client's Miranda rights had been violated and that Anderson would not receive a fair trial because portions of the taped Nov. 12, 1999, interview were missing.
