Pregnant Kansas Woman Is Fatally Shot on Day She Was to Learn Baby’s Sex — and Boyfriend Is Charged

A 26-year-old Kansas man has been accused of murdering his pregnant girlfriend three months ago — on the very day she planned to learn the sex of her baby at an ultrasound appointment.

PEOPLE confirms that Devonte Dominique Wash is being held on $5 million bail after being charged with capital murder for allegedly killing Ashley Harlan on Jan. 30, according to a statement from the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office.

Harlan, 23, was found fatally shot in her Olathe home. She was 20 weeks pregnant when she was killed — and authorities believe Wash was the baby’s father, the statement says.

Harlan died hours before she was to learn the sex of her unborn baby.
