RICHMOND, VA ( WWBT) - The search continues this morning for the Chesterfield man suspected of killing Susana Cisneros.

Cisneros, was just 2 weeks away from giving birth, was found murdered earlier this week in the parking of the Willow Lawn Hardees.

Her boyfriend, 27-year-old Gregory Nelson is wanted for first degree murder.

But this morning's paper is reporting that Nelson could face the death penalty if prosecutors in Henrico county determine that he intended to kill the fetus through the premeditated murder of the mother.

That's a capital offense in Virginia.

And as police continue to hunt for Nelson, family and friends are preparing to honor the life of Susanna Cisneros and her unborn son.

A private viewing will be held today, tomorrow and Sunday. The family also tells us they will hold a private funeral service this Saturday. It will be at 2pm at Sacred Heart Catholic Church.
