(Scroll down for video) A pregnant teacher was found dead one week after her daughter was seen walking alone on the streets.

Police in Louisiana, arrested 39-year-old Robert Marks after the body of his colleague and lover, 40-year-old Lyntell Washington, was discovered in Baton Rouge.

Washington, who was pregnant and a mother of one child, was once named “Teacher of the Year.”

She was reported missing after her 3-year-old daughter, Darillle, was spotted walking alone near her car, which had blood stains inside, but she was nowhere to be found.

The girl told police that “Mr. Robbie” hurt her mother near a dark lake and she was “now sleeping.”

Investigators believe the two, who worked at Brookstown Middle Magnet Academy, were having an affair,
and Marks feared that his wife would find out that he got Washington pregnant and therefore, he fatally shot her.

Detectives said that Marks took the child with him for a while before leaving her alone in a parking lot.

When she was found, Washington had to be identified by her dental records, police said.

Marks has already been charged with aggravated kidnapping and child desertion. Now that the body was found, Marks faces additional charges of murder and feticide.

He is being held without bond.
