One of the three men accused of murdering Samantha Dean in court today

Kevin Watson faces Capital Murder charges for his role in the death of Samantha Dean.  Watson says he was hired by a former Austin Police officer to commit the crime.

Dean’s pregnant body was found behind a shopping center near Bastrop last year.

She was seven months pregnant at the time and had been shot in the head three times.

According to investigators, Watson told someone that he and another man were hired to kill Dean.

He says they were hired by former APD officer Vontrey Clark.

Watson says Clark wanted the woman dead because he impregnated her, and she wouldn't have an abortion.

Kevin Watson's attorneys plan to fight the charges.
