Wasson was pregnant and 21-weeks along with twin boys at the time she was shot. It has still not been determined whether White was the father of the twins Wasson was carrying.

The first unborn twin died Tuesday. The second unborn twin died Wednesday afternoon.

Wasson has remained on life-support at the hospital since the shooting, although Anderson Police Chief Tony Watters says doctors have determined that she has no brain activity.

Watters said feticide charges will be filed Thursday against Skye’lar White, who allegedly shot Wasson in the head last Friday.
