A 23-year-old Georgia woman who was allegedly murdered by her boyfriend was pregnant, relatives told Channel 2 Action News.

Faith Bittinger was found dead around 11 p.m. Saturday night in her College Park apartment with a gunshot wound to her chest. Her boyfriend Reginald Jones was arrested Sunday. He has confessed to shooting Bittinger but claimed it 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.
