BEDFORD A capital murder warrant has been issued for the boyfriend of a young pregnant woman found stabbed to death in her Bedford apartment Sunday.

Tracy Anderson, 27, was due to give birth to a baby girl in May, according to her mother, Karen Lewis.

Police are searching for 26-year-old Robert Atlas. From Michigan, Lewis said she talks with her daughter daily. When she didn't hear from her this weekend, she asked Bedford police to check on her.

Upon their arrival to Anderson's apartment in the 2500 block of Central Park Blvd., officers found her.

Lewis said her daughter was in an abusive relationship and had recently moved in with a friend to get away from Atlas. Lewis said she talked with her daughter Thursday about trying to get a protective order against him.

Robert Atlas is believed to be driving a silver 2011 Dodge Charger with temporary tag 12M6970.

Bedford police say it appeared someone forced their way into the apartment.
