According to the criminal complaint, police arrived at the home on the 1900 block of Cottage Avenue in St. Paul after reports that a woman was shot in the head. 

The victim, 18-year-old Eileen Viveros-Vargas, of Landfall, was pregnant at the time of her death, and the unborn child did not survive, St. Paul police said.

The complaint states first responders found Chacon-Villeda giving Viveros-Vargas CPR in the bedroom. However, authorities also discovered marijuana in the bedroom.

After obtaining a search warrant, police found several bags and jars of marijuana totaling 482.56 grams – or 1.06 pounds – a scale, $2,101 in cash and a handgun, court documents state. 

Chacon-Villeda admitted to police the marijuana belonged to him, and that he sold the drug in his neighborhood, the complaint said.

Police say the investigation continues.
