Charges have been filed in the brutal murder of a pregnant cleaning lady at a southwest Houston strip club last weekend.

Maria Lucrecia, 27, of Houston, was five months pregnant and working at Eclipse Gentleman's Club on South Gessner as a cleaning lady Saturday afternoon when she was viciously strangled and beaten to death.

Investigators say Osvaldo Fernandez-Aguilar, 23, killed Lucrecia in the lobby of the club, took about $1,000 from a register and broke a window of an office in an attempt to steal from a safe before he walked out a back door.

Surveillance cameras from several neighboring businesses picked up images of the man, and police say he was identified as Fernandez-Aguilar.

Fernandez-Aguilar is charged with capital murder. He remains at large. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Osvaldo Fernandez-Aguilar is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
