A pregnant woman found burned alive last week in what may have been a confrontation over a car.

Family members of Amanda Lynn Benton, who was five months pregnant, reported her missing after she was last seen Monday.

Her mother told WDIV that Amanda, who was struggling to kick a heroin addiction, was killed for her car.

Her father, Tom Benton, said his daughter was trying to get help.
