OAKDALE - Deputies report finding the remains of of a pregnant woman murdered in 2011 by someone who planned to take her baby in Allen Parish.

The human remains were found Thursday at a house in Oakdale. He believes they belong to Victoria Marie Perez, last seen leaving an Alexandria hospital while eight months pregnant.

The house belongs to a relative of Pamela Causey-Fregia of Oakdale, who was arrested earlier this week. Hebert says she's now charged with first-degree murder and first-degree feticide.

Hebert says a tip led authorities to the house, and that DNA tests are being run. He says officials believe Causey-Fregia killed Perez nearby, moved Perez's body to the house, and burned it.

The sheriff says Causey-Fregia planned to raise Perez's baby as her own.
