The bodies were discovered in a car parked at an apartment complex last week.
According to Sgt. Washington Moscoso, Christopher Preciado will face capital murder charges, while his father, Ramon Preciado, will be charged with abuse of a corpse. Additional charges may be brought against them as the investigation progresses.
Last week, the bodies of Soto and Guerra were found in a Kia Optima parked at an apartment complex. Soto, who was full-term pregnant, had gone missing after her expected delivery date, causing significant concern among her family members.
Critical information for the investigation was obtained from Soto’s cellphone, collected at the crime scene. Detectives utilized the phone to locate a possible suspect vehicle through surveillance footage. This led them to the residence of the suspects.
When questioned about potential charges related to the death of Soto’s unborn child, Moscoso stated that detectives would discuss it with the district attorney, who would determine whether additional charges would be filed.
The investigation is ongoing, and further details are expected to emerge as the case progresses.
Authorities had previously released footage of two persons of interest driving the victims’ Kia Optima and a dark-colored pickup truck.
