Topeka Police are now considering Sunday's double homicide a case of three deaths.

Camrah Trotter, 20, and Dominque Ray, 23, were found dead early Sunday morning at Fairlawn Green Apartments. TPD told 13 NEWS that Trotter was pregnant at the time of her death. Under Alexa's Law, an unborn child, at any stage of gestation, is defined as a person for the purposes of the Kansas statutes against murder, manslaughter and several battery charges.

Authorities say both Trotter and Ray had been shot several times. So far Police have not released any details on potential suspects, only saying they do not believe the public is in danger. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 785-234-0007.

The deaths brings the homicide count in Topeka up to 13 for the year.
