A woman found dead after a reported carjacking Monday in Mansfield was pregnant with twins, police say.
The woman's boyfriend, 28-year-old Maurice Kelso Smith, is in custody facing a charge of capital murder of multiple persons, in addition to aggravated robbery and violating parole, police said Wednesday.
Officers had responded shortly before 1 p.m. Monday to a report of a carjacking in the 1600 block of North U.S. 287 frontage road, where a woman said a man had taken her vehicle at gunpoint and headed northbound, police said.
The woman said the carjacker came from a car in a nearby parking lot before stealing her vehicle. When officers checked the car, they found 26-year-old Darionne Cherelle Burley covered in blood in the passenger seat with a gunshot wound to her head, according to Smith's arrest warrant-affidavit.
Inside the vehicle was a wallet with a recent sonogram of Burley's twins, the affidavit read.
