Albany -- A woman was stabbed to death with her seven month old baby in her arms Wednesday night. Now, police and SWAT officers are scouring the town looking for the woman's boyfriend.

Nearly a dozen Albany Police Cars surrounded a house on Mulberry Avenue in East Albany. SWAT Team officers were looking for 26-year-old Earnest Sims the Third.

Sims is wanted for murdering 24-year-old Jessica Acres, his girlfriend, and mother of their three children, at their home on Crescent Drive Wednesday night.

A neighbor on Crescent Drive, who does not want us to show her face, said she heard screaming under her carport, and looked out her door to see Sims holding Acres by the throat.

The neighbor said "She said 'No, no, no.' She was holding a small baby in her arms. She whispered 'Help me, help me.'"

The neighbor said Sims tried to come into her house, so she locked the door and called 911. The neighbor and her 11-year-old grandson watched out the window.

The neighbor said "[He was] beating her, hitting her with his fist, dragging her by her neck across my yard, across the street. I go wake up my husband, I come back, my grandson is still watching. We watched her collapse onto her carport, and she never moved again."

"Just as she fell to the carport, she dropped the baby. The man picked up the baby and took it inside and left it. Then he walked off toward the back of the yard. We never saw him again."

Police believe Sims is driving a 1995 Gray Chrysler Concorde, license tag number DP 81Z U, and may still be somewhere in East Albany. If you can help police, call 911.
