Andy looked across the desk at the cops. “I have answered all of these questions before. Why are you here bothering me yet again? You should be out there looking for the person who killed her.”

“The autopsy report has come back. We have a few new questions for you.”

“Then ask them so I can get back to work.” He looked at his watch. “I have a meeting in an hour.”

“You may want to cancel that meeting, Mr. Maynard.”

That didn’t sound good. What could the autopsy report say that would have led them to his door?

“Were you aware that Miss Pugh was pregnant?”

Andy sat there in shocked silence letting that sink in. “I did not know. We had only been dating a few months.”

“The baby’s DNA was matched to yours. You would have had a son.”

“A son…” He closed his eyes and could picture Zalia holding their son. He felt the fresh wounds ripping into his heart.

“Mr. Maynard, we also matched your DNA to the semen found at the scene and in her body. You were a match.”

“I had already told you that I had spent the night at her house the night before. You already knew that  you would find my semen there.”

The cop was looking at him and watching his reactions.

“Yours was the only DNA found. She had been sexually assaulted and yours was the only DNA at the scene.”

Andy shook his head. “I never would have hurt her. I loved her.”

“Men in love hurt women all the time.”

“Not me. I never would.”

The cops both stood up.

“Mr. Maynard, you are under arrest for the rape and murder of Zalia Pugh.”
