A military police officer has been charged in the death of a pregnant Florida Panhandle woman whose body washed ashore in a bag earlier this month.
Zachary Littleton was arrested at the Pensacola Naval Air Station on Monday. He is being held without bond on a homicide charge at the Escambia County Jail.
Investigators believe Littleton, who is married and in the Navy, fathered Samira Watkins' unborn child and wanted her to have an abortion. She was two months pregnant at the time. The 25-year-old woman was last seen leaving her grandmother's home in late October. Jail records did not list an attorney for Littleton.
