They believe he acted alone.
Told the neighbor who found the mother dead via KHOU: ‘Saturday morning, when I drive by and I saw the door open, that’s when I figured something was wrong.
‘I thought maybe someone had broken in the house or something and that’s when I found the unfortunate event that happened.
‘She was four months pregnant. She was pretty happy-go-lucky. Didn’t have a lot of drama in her life.’
The neighbor added that Moseley’s son seemed to be stable.
