A woman eight months pregnant is shot to death in her home along with her 15-year-old brother.

Baton Rouge police say 39-year-old Percy James Cage is responsible for the crime, shooting and killing ex-girlfriend, 31-year-old Tonya Smith and her 15-year old brother Renna Boreaux.

The shooting happened around 4:30 Friday morning. Police say just last month, Cage allegedly punched Smith in the face while she was driving, then threatened her with a screwdriver.

Cage was arrested in Gonzales late Friday afternoon. Police found him holed up in a shed.
