SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Police accuse a Shreveport man of killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend after her body was found in a pond in the MLK neighborhood of Shreveport Friday night.

Shreveport Police Chief Henry Whitehorn then said, "at this point we have arrested Killamondre Tucker who is allegedly the former boyfriend of Ms. Seals and he's in custody on first degree murder.  An autopsy was performed this morning and she was pregnant."

Relatives first reported 18-year old Tavia Sills missing on Tuesday.  Three days later, just after 6 p.m. Friday (9/12), a couple discovered Sills body while fishing at a pond just beyond the dead end at the 17-hundred block of of Legardy Street.

Chief Whitehorn would not reveal the suspected cause of death nor if the pond was the murder scene or just the spot where the body was dropped.  Chief Whitehorn also said investigators believe the body had been there several days.

Seals had just started at Southern University and was 5-months pregnant. Chief Whitehorn also declined to say whether or not Tucker was the father of the baby or a possible motive for the homicide.
