Sailor charged in death of pregnant woman

PENSACOLA, Fla. — A military police officer has been charged in the death of a pregnant Florida Panhandle woman whose body washed ashore in a bag earlier this month.

Master-at-Arms 3rd Class (SW) Zachary Littleton, 25, was arrested at Naval Air Station Pensacola on Monday. He is being held without bond on a homicide charge at the Escambia County Jail.

Investigators think Littleton, who is married, fathered Samira Watkins‘s fetus and wanted her to have an abortion. She was two months pregnant at the time.

The 25-year-old woman was last seen leaving her grandmother’s home in late October.

Jail records did not list an attorney for Littleton.

Littleton enlisted in August 2004. He has been stationed at the Pensacola Naval Air Station since September 2008, according to Navy records.
