ST. LOUIS (AP) –  Police say a man suspected of killing his pregnant wife and shooting her boyfriend in a St. Louis parking lot has died after shooting himself.

Forty-one-year-old Terrance Burnett died Thursday night.

He was a suspect in the death of 29- year-old Danielle Burnett-Famous, who was four months pregnant.

She and her unborn child died Tuesday after she was shot while standing near her car in a parking lot.

A male friend was treated and released for a gunshot wound.

Prosecutors filed first-degree murder charges against Burnett Thursday.

He shot himself while officers looked for him in Florissant.

Police say Burnett ran under a bridge embankment and shot himself after hearing a police car’s lights and sirens in an unrelated traffic accident.
