Man charged with murder in girlfriend's death

FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say a man arrested in his girlfriend's death has been charged with two counts of capital murder.

The Southwest Times Record reports ( ) 21-year-old Douglas True was charged Monday in Sebastian County Circuit Court.

True was arrested July 20 after he called officers to turn himself in in the death of 22-year-old Briana Butler, who was at least five months pregnant.

Police say True told officers he and Butler argued and then fought. He said he was intoxicated and couldn't remember what happened after that.

The court says records don't show if True has an attorney yet. He's being held without bond and is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.
