A man arrested in connection with the shooting death of a pregnant woman has been charged.
Investigators say Jamar Silas, 22, shot and killed Brianna L. Anderson last week. Anderson was eight months pregnant; doctors were able to save the baby.
Silas is charged with 2nd degree murder. Police say witnesses identified him as the man who came out of Anderson's house after gunshots were fired.
Police also say they have text messages from Silas to another witness saying he had "messed up" and that Anderson was dead.
Silas is also charged as a felon in possession of a firearm.
