The Buckingham County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate a fatal stabbing that occurred Wednesday in a grocery store parking lot.
Sheriffs say testing is underway to see if the victim, Alexis Artice Rose, was pregnant at the time of her death.
The suspect, Christopher Moseley, is being transferred from Henrico County Regional Jail to Piedmont Regional Jail in Farmville.
Investigators say he ditched his car in Goochland County after the stabbing in Dillwyn and then stole a truck from a dealership lot. He was arrested in New Kent County.
Moseley has an advisement hearing Friday in Buckingham County General District Court.
Buckingham County Sheriff's Office Press Release
The Buckingham County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate the death of Alexis Artice Rose that occurred on May 1, 2013 in Buckingham County. A preliminary investigation has yet to confirm if Ms. Rose was pregnant at the time of her death and further testing is underway.
The Sheriff's Office is confident that this incident only involved Mr. Moseley and Ms. Rose. The investigation has not identified anyone else associated with this incident and there are no indications otherwise.
However, the investigation did reveal that after the incident in Buckingham, Mr. Moseley drove his white 2008 Chevrolet Impala to the 2000 block of River Road West in Goochland County and abandoned it. The Goochland County Sheriff's Office discovered Mr. Moseley's vehicle at around 8:20 a.m. on May 1, 2013 and contacted the Buckingham County Sheriff's Office.
Earlier that morning, Goochland County Sheriff's Office investigated a burglary into a local car dealership located at 2900 River Road West (Parrish Ford). There, Goochland deputies discovered a 2013 Ford F-150 missing from the dealer's lot.
A Virginia State Police press release detailed the following:
"Shortly after 3:00 a.m., May 1, a Virginia State Police trooper encountered the driver of a 2013 Ford F-150 on Interstate 64 eastbound at the 215 mile marker in New Kent County. The trooper noticed the vehicle was missing its license plates. Upon stopping the vehicle and through the trooper's investigation, it was determined that the vehicle was possibly stolen from a car dealership in Goochland County. The Goochland County Sheriff's Office was contacted and it was determined that the Sheriff's Office was conducting a breaking and entering investigation at the dealership. The driver of the Ford, Christopher J. Moseley was arrested without incident and charged by State Police for felony grand larceny. After further investigation, it was determined that Moseley was wanted by the Buckingham County Sheriff's Office in connection with an on-going homicide investigation. Moseley was held without bond at Henrico County Regional Jail East."
