CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Police in North Carolina are searching for a man wanted in the death of a woman who they say was 24 weeks pregnant.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police have charged 35-year-old Edward Silk Garner Sr. with offenses including murder in the death of 28-year-old Alesha Shantel Summers. Garner had not been apprehended as of Tuesday evening.

Police also say he took his two children from the scene, and left with Edward Silk Garner Jr., who voluntarily came to police headquarters on Tuesday morning after seeing his photo on various media outlets.

Police say the two children were found safe with relatives at separate locations. Officers later found the car belonging to the elder Garner.
