A pregnant teenager from Texas was allegedly killed by her step father after he got her pregnant for a second time.

Jennifer Delgado (15) was shot dead by her step-father Armando Garcia-Ramires (36) at their home, according to Fox News.

According to police, the teenager had revealed to her biological mother that Garcia-Ramires was the father of her unborn child and her 1-year-old baby boy.

The man had allegedly impregnated the 15-year-old a month after he was released from jail.

The mother apparently did not go to police with the news.

On March 6, Garcia-Ramires met with his ex-wife to give her money and told her he would shoot himself because he couldn't live without her.

According to Fox News, he shot himself in the chin and was rushed to hospital.

Police checked in on Ms Delgado (15) after they were informed of the incestuous relationship.

When they arrived at her mother’s apartment, emergency services found the teen’s body with her 1-year-old child sitting next to her.

Garcia-Ramires allegedly shot her at least four times in the head and once in the chest, police said.

The 15-year-old was rushed to hospital where attempts were made to save her and her baby, to no avail.

Garcia-Ramires has been charged with two counts of capital murder.

According to the Washington Times, Garcia-Ramires was allowed to stay in the US following two arrests by immigration agency, most recently in April 2015 after he allegedly attempted to smuggle five illegal immigrants into the US.
