Mom-of-two, 23, found dead in boyfriend’s freezer wrapped in tarp as he’s arrested for murder

A pregnant mom-of-two was allegedly found dead in her boyfriend's freezer wrapped in a tarp.

William James Hernandez, 39, was arrested for murder, after the body of his girlfriend Selena Ann Bradley, 23, was found on Monday, Texas police said.

The body of Selena Ann Bradley, 23, was found in a freezer on Monday, police said.

William James Hernandez was arrested and charged with murder after his girlfriend's body was discovered.

Officials with the San Angelo Police Department and Texas Green Sheriff's Department found Bradley's body three days after she was reported missing.

Her body was found in an apartment in San Angelo, police said in a press release.

An arrest affidavit said her body was found in a freezer, KTXS reported.

Her body was wrapped in a blue tarp, the outlet reported.

The mom – who was pregnant with her third child – had "marks on her neck and the left side of her face," the affidavit said.

Bradley was a mom of two, and pregnant with her third.

The body was found in Hernandez' home, documents state.

The document said the marks show evidence that Bradley was "struck and assaulted," KTXS reported.

Police had suspected Hernandez – also known by the last name Martinez – may have been involved in her disappearance.

Hernandez lived at the home where the body was found, and court records said that he told a close friend that he did something "terrible," KTXS reported.

Court records said he told his friend "the body was in a freezer."

After a manhunt, Hernandez was arrested on Tuesday, according to a police statement.

Documents said Bradley's body show evidence she was 'struck and assaulted'.

He was charged with murder – along with a slew of other charges, according to jail records.

The alleged killer also faces charges for child sexual assault, assault, and tampering with evidence.

His bond is set at more than $1million.

Bradley's official cause and manner of death have not yet been determined, as officials await autopsy results, police said.
