HOUSTON, TX – Investigators say they caught the man who killed a Houston woman in her apartment, leaving her body there with her children.

Police in St. Helena Parish, Louisiana arrested Jacob Robertson earlier this month for driving a stolen car.  He’s now facing capital murder charges after HPD connected him to the death of Sandra Carpio.

Carpio was found dead at the Clayton Homes Apartments on April 2. Police were tipped off to her murder when one of her children told a neighbor his mom was dead.

Investigators say Robertson was an acquaintance of Carpio’s boyfriend and was staying with her at the time.
