NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The Orleans Parish coroner now says the expecting mother, Breon Stewart and her unborn child both died from gunshot wounds.

They were gunned down alongside Lionel Delpitt, III at the Wind Run Apartments in New Orleans East last week.

"As this child was of a viable age, I personally consider this a homicide, subject to possible prosecution under Louisiana's feticide law," Jeffery Rouse, M.D. said in a press release.

Crimestoppers has doubled the reward for information in the killings to $5,000.

Anyone with information can contact Crimestoppers anonymously at 504-822-1111.
