HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- An arrest has been made in the case of a pregnant woman who was found shot to death in her car in southwest Houston more than six months ago, police confirm.

On Thursday, HPD said Devin Marsalis Allen was arrested Wednesday night and has been charged with capital murder in the death of 27-year-old Amber Butler.
Butler was just days away from giving birth to her second son when she was found unresponsive on April 8.
Houston police said the car was parked in a moving lane of traffic with the engine still running in the 3600 block of Willowbend near Highway 90.
"A 5-year-old is left behind grieving. A mother is left behind grieving. An entire family is left behind to grieve, and we'll get through it with the grace of God. But we're going to continue to watch justice prevail," Butler's relative, Phyllis Brown, said.
As details in the case continue to unfold, Butler's family confirmed to ABC13 that she was in a relationship with Allen, who is also the father of the unborn child.
"My daughter lost her life because of someone's selfishness," Butler's mother, Anika Benjamin, said. "My family and I may have a little peace from it all, but it won't bring her back."
A motive was not immediately disclosed.
