A Texas man had detained in New Mexico after reportedly running into the hotel room of Houston after shooting his 8-month-women-pregnant wife.
Justin Herron, 31, reportedly confessed to the murder of Patra Perkins who died days before her 19th birthday.
According to researchers, the body of Perkins had discovered in a hotel room on 4 August riddled with bullets.
The fire also murdered the unborn baby of the couple, and police confirmed in a declaration received.
Herron was arrested Saturday in New Mexico, and Houston Police Department officers flew to Albuquerque for extradition.
A police source spoke and said that Herron told researchers that he had felt betrayed, accusing Patra of texting a guy he had felt threatened by.
Herron has not appealed the capital assassination charge he faces. On Monday, it was uncertain whether he had a lawyer who could deal with the claims on his behalf.
A GoFundMe campaign for Patra and her unborn baby has been set up to cover the expenses of the funeral, which she intended to call Jai’Ary.
The site called the killing “a shock, sudden and heartbreaking,” and added that Patra “was so glad and eager to be the first mother.”
Herron revealed a long history of crime. At the moment of the assassination of Perkins, Herron was out of contact because he was driving a stolen car and fleeing the police.
Charged with capital assassination, on Thursday Herron transformed into the Albuquerque Police Department. He admitted to the killing— and claimed to have murdered Perkins because she wrote to another person, a police source said, who he felt threatened with.
Public Information Officer Jodi Silva from the Houston Police Department informed the Houston Chronicle that law enforcement officers are going to New Mexico to interview Herron. Silva said Harris County would be in charge of the extradition of the murder suspect.
