The attorney of the alleged killer of a pregnant Lufkin woman and her unborn child speaks for the first time.

The suspect, 20-year-old Darrell Ivey, Is currently charged with capital murder. He is accused of shooting and killing his fiancee, Claudia Rodriguez, and their unborn child. Ivey's lawyer says it's a sad situation for everyone involved.

"It's a terrible tragedy for both families. Both families lost a grandchild and that's not a nice thing. Beyond that, it's an ongoing investigation. It's very early in the investigation. I've just been retained. We're looking into the case but I can't tell you very much about the details," said Ivey's attorney, Charlie Meyers.

Meyers says his client is remorseful about the death of his fiancee and their unborn child.
