A man accused of shooting a killing his pregnant estranged wife could face up to nine charges.

Andre Jones, 32, made his first appearance in court Thursday.

Andre is accused of shooting and killing 32-year-old Lakeisha Jones on Sept. 9 at her Colorado Springs apartment on the southwest side of town. Lakeisha was 30 weeks pregnant at the time of the murder, and doctors were successfully able to deliver her baby girl. The infant was last reported to be in critical condition.

Court papers obtained by 11 News Andre and Lakeisha reveal the couple was in the middle of a divorce at the time of the shooting. She was allegedly pregnant with her co-worker's baby.

Court papers go on to say that Andre had threatened to kill her, her co-worker and her unborn child after he found out it wasn't his.

Andre now faces first-degree murder charges as well as a litany of others. He returns to court Friday.
