BEDFORD The search for a Bedford capital murder suspect ended before dawn Tuesday morning.

Robert Atlas is accused of stabbing to death his pregnant girlfriend, Tracy Anderson.

Police said they found Atlas asleep in a car in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart parking about 2 a.m. outside Shreveport.

Bedford police discovered the body of 27-year-old Tracy Anderson inside her apartment Sunday after receiving a call from her mother, Karen Lewis, in Michigan. She told authorities hadn't been able to reach her daughter.

Lewis told News 8 her daughter was looking forward to the birth of her baby girl in May. Police have not revealed details that led them to name Atlas as a suspect.
