BUTLER COUNTY, AL (WSFA) - A Butler County grand jury has indicted a man accused of killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend.

According to court records, Harrison Cole English, 19, was indicted on charges of capital murder of two or more people for the death of his girlfriend Maura McCoy and an unborn child.

Harrison applied for youthful offender status but was denied, according to court documents.

English is accused of using a golf club to beat and kill McCoy and her unborn child.

English was arrested in June 2018 after court documents say he confessed to police that he killed McCoy after learning she was pregnant with his child. The two were reportedly arguing when McCoy was killed.

McCoy was missing for a few days before her body was discovered in a wooded area.

Harrison is being held without bond. His trial has been set for December.
