If you murdered somebody, don't post it on Facebook

A San Bernardino County man accused in the beating death of his pregnant girlfriend was arrested after a post appeared on his Facebook page implying that her death was an accident.

Willie Davis Hines Jr., 23, was booked into the San Bernardino Central Detention Center on two counts of murder in connection with the death of Tatjana Cruz, 24, and her unborn child, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department said Tuesday.

Hines was arrested after he flagged down a security guard at a mall in San Diego late Monday and told him he was wanted for questioning in a murder, the department said in a statement.

He was being held Tuesday without bail.
