HOUMA, La. (AP) - Terrebonne Parish sheriff’s deputies are investigating the death of an unborn child.

Sheriff Jerry Larpenter says the death was the results of domestic violence between the child’s mother and her live in boyfriend, who was the father of her unborn child.

Larpenter says 36-year-old Tyson Cheavis was arrested and booked Tuesday with second-degree feticide and two counts of second-degree battery

The sheriff said in a news release that Cheavis admitted multiple physical confrontations with the 27-year-old female after he was aware that she was pregnant.

Bond on the second-degree feticide charge has been set at $300,000.

Online jail records did not list an attorney for Cheavis.
