MARTINSBURG, W.Va. --Authorities are exploring "all avenues" to find the Virginia man who has been charged in the homicide of Angela Kay Devonshire, Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney Pamela Jean Games-Neely said Friday.

The bodies of Devonshire, 22, and her 3-year-old son, Andre, were found Sunday morning inside their fire-gutted garage apartment off Sam Mason Road west of Interstate 81.

Antonio Prophet, 34, of Lorton, Va., has been charged with one count of first-degree murder in Devonshire's death.

"The last location they had for him was in the Manassas, Va., area," Games-Neely said of Prophet's whereabouts.

Prophet had been dating the Bunker Hill, W.Va., woman for about two weeks, police have said.

The funeral service for Devonshire will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday at South Berkeley Chapel in Inwood, W.Va.

A fund has been established at Centra Bank's Inwood location for the Devonshire family. Contributions may be sent to The Devonshire Fund, c/o Joyce Kees, Centra Bank, P.O. Box 1729, Inwood, WV 25428; or dropped off at any Centra Bank location.
