PEORIA, Ill -- The Peoria County Coroner has confirmed the female victim of Thursday's double homicide KeiAmber Beard, 24, was in her first trimester of pregnancy.

That means it is possible that this could turn into a triple homicide.

The State's Attorney's office will decide that charge after determining if it was a viable fetus from medical records.

Charges would of course only be filed if a suspect is arrested.

Beard and her boyfriend James A. Irby Jr., 29 were fatally shot in their home at 1204 West Margaret early Thursday morning.

There are still no suspects in the case at this time. Anyone with information is urged to call the Peoria Police or Crimestoppers at 673-9000.
