by Ramonica R. Jones

A Lufkin man is in jail accused of shooting his pregnant girlfriend. She remains alive despite her injuries, but her unborn child has died. Now, her boyfriend, 20-year-old Darrell Ivey, is facing a charge of capital murder.  

Claudia Rodriguez was taken to the hospital Tuesday night suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.

The shooting happened at their home on Packer Street in Lufkin. Rodriguez is in critical condition. She is being treated in a Lufkin intensive care unit.

Darrell Ivey is also charged with possession of a controlled substance because a large amount of cocaine and ecstasy was found inside the house.
