Grubbs says the body of 22-year-old Briana Butler was found lying on the floor of the bathroom. He says she was near or at mid-term of her pregnancy.
A knife was found at the residence that police believe was used as a weapon. True has been charged with two counts of capital murder.
Authorities didn’t know whether True has an attorney. He is being held at the Sebastian County Detention Center without bond.
