A pregnant Arlington woman who was slain last week had warned a friend in March that her ex-boyfriend was going to kill her, according to an arrest warrant affidavit released Wednesday night.
Kenishia Walker, 25, sent her friend screen shots of her conversations with Keith Haynes, the father of the child she was expecting.
“If I ever come up dead please show the police this and other screenshots,” Walker texted her friend, according to the affidavit.
Haynes, 27, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion that he fatally shot Walker, police said.

Fugitive officers took him into custody at his apartment in Plano, said Lt. Chris Cook, Arlington police spokesman. He was booked into the Arlington Jail on a capital murder charge at about 9 p.m., records showed.
Walker’s 8-year-old son found her unresponsive Friday at their town home in the 2200 block of Ridge Run Road and contacted a neighbor, who called 911, police said.
The boy, who was unharmed, told police that he saw Haynes at the home Thursday night. Haynes, whom the boy identified as “Moosie,” had been a longtime friend of his mother’s, the boy told police.
When he awoke the next morning, the boy found his mother wounded in her bed and Haynes gone, the affidavit said.
Detectives contacted Walker’s mother, who provided Haynes’ real name and said that Haynes and Walker had previously been in a relationship.
Haynes told detectives that he was believed to be the father of Walker’s unborn child and that he was in a relationship with another woman, who is also pregnant with his child.
He said he last saw Walker on April 12, two days before she died, the affidavit said. He said he found out about Walker’s death from a friend.
Cellphone records obtained by police showed texts between Walker and Haynes indicating they had been in an argument.
One text, received by Walker at 10:43 p.m. Thursday, indicated that Haynes would be at Walker’s home in 40 minutes, the affidavit said.
Haynes’ bail will be set at $250,000, according to the affidavit.
