A Marine reservist and two alleged accomplices were arrested today on suspicion of attempting to brutally murder his 23-year-old wife earlier this month.

Brian Corder, 26, of Canoga Park allegedly conspired with two accomplices to attempt to murder his wife in their apartment and make it look like a break-in, according to CBS Los Angeles. The trio allegedly beat her up and used whatever objects they could find, including a frying pan and a lamp.

His apparent mistress 19-year-old Fredericka Carmouche and Stephon Crutchfield, 21, were his alleged accomplices.

Neighbors called police when they heard someone screaming to call 9-1-1 around 12:40 am on June 16. By the time police arrived, Corder's wife was already in bad shape and they thought she was already dead. Both she and her unborn baby survived.
