A man waited for his pregnant ex-girlfriend to come back to a safehouse where he stabbed her to death because he thought she would accuse him of domestic violence, which would send him back to prison, according to authorities in Alabama.

The Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor said at a press conference that dispatchers received a call shortly after midnight on Saturday about a body found at a fire station, which also serves as a safe house for domestic violence victims. The victim, 37-year-old Treasure Hennessy, was suffering from several stab wounds.

Her boyfriend, Bradley Wayne Stokes, was arrested Saturday afternoon in nearby Columbus, Georgia, and is facing a capital murder charges for Hennessy and the unborn child. Hennessy was 8-weeks pregnant with Stokes’ child, cops say. He also is facing a fleeing and eluding charge after he attempted to evade capture.

Stokes, 39, was released from federal prison on June 2 after serving 14 years of a 16-year sentence for weapons charges and manslaughter in the 2008 shooting death of his girlfriend Crystal Bailey, court records and media reports say. Not long after he was released, he and Hennessy began dating, according to Taylor. Hennessy had filed at least two domestic violence reports against Stokes while they were dating, Taylor said.
