Southern Pines Police made an arrest Thursday in the murder of a Sanford teen and her unborn child Sunday.

18-year-old Brian Lovon Little from a Robin Covington Road address in Rockingham was arrested and charged with First Degree Murder and Murder Of An Unborn Child.

The charges stem from the murder of 18-year-old Aiyonna Clarice Barrett and her unborn baby on April 8, 2018 after the womans body was found in a vehicle in a wooded area at the end of South Gains Street in Southern Pines. The victim had sustained a single gunshot wound to the head according to officials.

During a press conference held Friday afternoon officials stated that it was believed Little was the father of the unborn child being carried by the victim.

After his arrest Little was transported to the Moore County Detention Center in Carthage where he was held with no bond. His first scheduled appearance in court is on April 24, 2018

Southern Pines Police Chief Bob Temme offered the following comments after the arrest of Brian Lovon Little: “The immediate aftermath of a homicide is a time of confusion and intense emotion for everyone involved. I have the privilege of working with and supervising arguably, the best Detectives, Patrol Officers, and Dispatchers in the country, who all were able to displace their emotions in the pursuit of justice for Aiyonna and her unborn child. We all grieve for the family and friends of Aiyonna and while we, at the Southern Pines Police Department, cannot return to this earth Aiyonna and her child, we can ensure that justice is served, and today, I believe we have done just that.”

This investigation is still ongoing. Anyone who may have additional information related to this investigation may contact the Southern Pines Police Department by calling (910) 692-7031, or the Crime Tip Line at (910) 693-4110. All information provided will remain confidential and can be provided anonymously.

Assisting Southern Pines Police Department with the investigation were the Moore County Sheriff’s Department, NC State Bureau of Investigation, Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department, Richmond County Sheriff’s Department, and the Rockingham Police Department.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law
