EL PASO, Texas -

A 38-year-old man has been charged with two counts of murder for the homicide of a pregnant woman and her unborn child.

El Paso Police say Ruben Cazares, of Socorro, Texas, ran over 18-year-old Alma Reaux, of the 200 block of California, on Nov. 19.

Initially, the incident, which happened in broad daylight at 1 p.m., was reported as a hit-and-run at 200 W. California in Sunset Heights.

Police said the investigation revealed Cazares was behind the wheel of the SUV that struck Reux. Police said that Cazares and Reux got into an argument during a drug deal before he ran her over.

She and her 13-week-old fetus died the night they were hit, police said.

Cazares is being held at the El Paso County Jail on a $1 million bond.
