ST. PAUL, Minn. -- A man accused of killing a pregnant woman in St. Paul made his first appearance in court Monday.

Paul Harris, 24, is charged with second-degree murder in a drive-by shooting. In court Monday, his bail was set at $2,000,000 and his next court date is set for April 3. 

According to a criminal complaint, last Monday evening, Harris pulled up next to a car that the victim was in and shot through the window, hitting 21-year-old Gabriella Dehoyos in the head.

The driver and Dehoyos' boyfriend rushed her to the hospital, but she died from her injuries.

His hearing is set for 9 o'clock Monday morning.
