Police: 1 unborn twin dies after pregnant Indiana woman shot

Authorities say one of two unborn babies being carried by a woman on life support after she was shot in Anderson has died.

Anderson Police Chief Tony Watters said one of the male twins died Tuesday of “detrimental effects” of the shooting. Police said 29-year-old Alexis M. Wasson was about 20 weeks pregnant when she was shot in the back of the head at her home Friday. She’s hospitalized in Indianapolis.

Police on Friday arrested her boyfriend, 29-year-old Skye’lar De’Andre White, on suspicion of attempted murder and criminal recklessness.

White said Monday he planned to hire a lawyer, but none was listed Wednesday in online court records. Police said White told Wasson’s mother the shooting was accidental.

Madison County prosecutor Rodney Cummings said charges against White now likely will include murder.
