Tampa Man Charged With Two Homicide Felonies After Allegedly Killing Woman Pregnant With His Child

pistol-1350484_640.jpgA Tampa man is facing homicide charges after authorities say he shot to death a pregnant woman early in the month.

Hillsborough County authorities say they were alerted to the sound of gunshots early in the pre-dawn hours of May 5 at the 1000 block of East 25th Avenue, leading to their discovery of a bullet-ridden red Camaro.

Upon further inspection, the lifeless body of a pregnant 22-year-old woman was discovered in the driver's seat, launching the homicide investigation. Meanwhile, the father of the fetus was arrested by police on unrelated charges, but suspicion of his involvement in her death centered upon him very early on.

Per investigators, the defendant had had several injunctions sought against him by the victim, and he allegedly placed a GPS tracker on her car in order to monitor her movements. They say they also have surveillance video evidence of his involvement in the shooting as well as eyewitness accounts tying him to the crime.

In addition to past alleged run-ins with the victim, detectives say paperwork within the Camaro cited the defendant as the deceased fetus's father.

Initially booked into the Hillsborough County Jail on charges of tampering with an electric monitoring device and violating probation on prior felony drug charges, prosecutors subsequently added the charges of felon in possession of a firearm, shooting at or within a vehicle, first-degree murder, and killing an unborn child by murdering its mother. He continues to be held in jail without bond.
