TROY, New York — Police have arrested the ex-boyfriend of a 19-year-old pregnant woman found dead in a fire-ravaged Troy apartment building.

Vanessa Milligan was found dead after a fire in her Troy apartment on April 4, a week before her due date. On Wednesday, 18-year-old Gabriel Vega was taken into custody in connection with the deaths of Milligan and her unborn daughter.

Troy Police Chief John Tedesco tells local media outlets that Vega was arrested in Albany by Troy police and U.S. Marshals. He's due for arraignment Thursday morning in Rensselaer County Court before Judge Debra Young.

A sealed indictment was handed up in the case last week.
