    WACO, Texas (KWTX) A Waco man whom DNA evidence linked to the 2016 strangulation and beating death of his ex-girlfriend was indicted for murder (habitual) Wednesday.

    Unekeyia Shanta Walker, 29, was found dead on Feb. 4, 2016 sitting inside her SUV outside her home on North 15th Street.

    A medical examiner ruled that she had died by strangulation and blunt force trauma.

    Her ex-boyfriend, Marcus Scott, 39, was identified early in the investigation as a possible suspect, according to an arrest warrant affidavit, but not until this March did detectives get results of DNA tests performed on blood stains found inside Walker’s SUV that linked him to the killing.

    He was arrested on April 6, and remains in the McLennan County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bond.

    Walker had broken up with Scott because of physical violence, but when she returned home on Feb. 2, 2016, she found him sitting on the front porch of her home, an arrest affidavit says.

    She went to the home of her cousin and returned with him “with the intention of having Mr. Scott leave,” the affidavit says.

    She and her cousin drove Scott to his home on Maple Avenue, and later Walker received “threatening and harassing” texts from Scott, the affidavit says.

    After spending the night of Feb 2, 2016 at her cousin’s house, she got up early the next morning to pick up her children, the affidavit says.

    That was the last time family or friends saw her alive.

    She was found dead the next day in her SUV wearing a muilti-colored print shirt and jeans, the left leg of which was ripped off completely from the crotch down.

    “Disheveled black flip flops were found leading up to the driver side of the vehicle,” the affidavit said.

    “The deceased appeared to have been stuffed in the driver’s seat. She was found sitting in an unnatural position, one in which she would not have placed herself.”

    Crime scene technicians collected swabs of blood from inside the car, which were later sent for the DNA testing that eventually linked Scott to the murder.

    Officers then went to Scott’s house and found that he had a cut on his right index finger and a cut on the front portion of his left shin, which Scott told officers he received from a screen door.

    He consented to providing a DNA sample.

    The next day, Feb. 5, 2016, officers interviewed him.

    He told them the last time he saw Walker was on Sunday Jan. 31, 2016, which was contradicted by Walker’s cousin’s account that Scott was on the porch of Walker’s home on the night of Tuesday Feb. 2, 2016.

    When asked what he last saw Walker wearing, Scott described the clothing she was wearing when her body was found.

    “During the interview Mr. Scott made several statements that were inconsistent with the investigation,” the affidavit says.

    “I confronted Mr. Scott about his inconsistency and asked him if he would submit to a polygraph,” the affidavit says.

    “Hesitantly he agreed to the polygraph test,” the affidavit says.

    During the test on Feb. 18 he told the examiner he had fought with Walker twice.

    In January 2016 he said he “play chocked” Walker, who he said was bigger than he is and said “he was defending himself during the fight.”

    During the autopsy pathologists found that her hyoid bone, a small bone in the front of the neck, was broken and they found slight evidence of strangulation on her neck, the report of autopsy shows.

    The medical examiner also reported bruising on her neck, lips, abdomen, arms, legs and back that were evidence of blunt force trauma.

    The blame lays solely at his feet.

    Be smarter, men and women, don't allow a beast into your life.

    So, you're alone.

    You're alive.

    Trust a beast and you could end up pushing up daisies,

    Don't trust a beast.

    How do you know if he or she is a beast?

    Your friends, relatives, mammy, pappy told you she or he is a beast.

    Trust the people you know, not the beast you met last week.
