LA MARQUE, TX -- The 14-year-old accused of killing his pregnant mother had been removed twice from the home.

According to  CPS the teen was removed from his mother, Nita Moseley's custody because of her substance abuse and her partner's domestic violence.

He was placed in his father's custody in 2011.

CPS also said 33-year-old Moseley  had a newborn son removed from her custody less than a month after his birth.

La Marque police believe the boy acted alone in his mother's killing.

We don't have a possible motive and are waiting on autopsy results for an exact cause of death.
