OBERLIN, La. (AP) - A hearing has been set for Aug. 27 on a series of motions asking judge to allow an Oakdale woman accused of killing, burning and burying a pregnant woman and her unborn baby in 2011 to change her plea and reduce her bond.

The American Press reports (https://bit.ly/1eOXZNb) Pamela Causey-Fregia, 32, wants to plead guilty by reason of insanity. She also wants her $780,000 bond reduced.

Causey-Fregia is charged with first-degree murder and first-degree feticide in the death of Victoria Marie Perez, 22, who was eight months pregnant when she disappeared in March 2011 after leaving a doctor’s appointment in Alexandria.

Causey-Fregia also faces charges of accessory after the fact, aggravated battery and obstruction of justice. She is accused of killing Perez and her unborn baby, then burning and burying Perez’s body in a wooded area in Oakdale. She also burned a blanket and a plastic storage tote that could have been used as evidence, said Sheriff Doug Hebert III.

Authorities believe Causey-Fregia killed Perez to take her baby and raise it as her own, then burned and buried the body.

Perez’s remains were found near a home in Oakdale in February. The property is owned by Causey-Fregia’s family.

Allen Parish authorities began reinvestigating Perez’s disappearance in January after receiving information from a state wildlife agent who had heard that one of Causey-Fregia’s minor children had information on Perez’s death.
