A Georgia woman whose boyfriend is accused of killing her was pregnant at the time of her death, according to relatives.
Faith Bittinger, 23, was found dead at her College Park apartment Saturday night from a gunshot wound to her chest.
Her boyfriend was arrested Sunday morning hours after Bittinger’s body was discovered.
Police said Reginald Jones, of Powder Springs, confessed to the shooting and claimed the incident was an accident.
“He stated it was an accident but detectives are following up on additional leads that may have a bearing [on] this,” College Park Lt. Nathan Ward told the Marietta Daily Journal.
Jones was taken into custody at Fulton County Jail. He faces charges including murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Bittinger’s relatives said the expecting couple, who also had an infant daughter together, had a “rocky” relationship, according to news station WAGA.
Her family created a GoFundMe page to raise money for the 23-year-old’s funeral services.
