HOUSTON — The man accused of shooting his pregnant wife to death last month is in custody, according to Houston police.

David Nathan Willis, 39, is charged with capital murder. He turned himself in on the Fourth of July without incident.

On June 27, Willis' wife was found shot to death at an apartment in the 3700 block of Southmore Boulevard around 3:40 p.m.

Authorities said a family member became concerned for the couple after hearing about a possible disturbance.

When officers arrived and gained entry into the apartment, 39-year-old Andrea Williams was found dead on the floor. Willis was nowhere to be found. A warrant was issued for his arrest shortly after Williams' body was found.
