    CANTON, Ohio — The boyfriend of a missing pregnant woman was arrested on two counts of murder charges Saturday, and a body believed to be hers was found nearly a week after she vanished from her home, authorities said.
    Jessie Davis’ 2-year-old son was found alone in their home, where bedroom furniture was toppled and bleach spilled on the floor. Davis was due to deliver a baby girl on July 3.
    The boy gave investigators their first clues. ‘‘Mommy was crying. Mommy broke the table. Mommy’s in rug,’’ the boy said.
    The Stark County Sheriff’s Department said a body was recovered in Summit County at 3:30 p.m. Saturday. Authorities did not give a location but said they believed it to be Davis.
    Davis’ boyfriend, Bobby Cutts Jr., 30, is to be arraigned Monday on two counts of murder in the woman’s death and the unborn child, the sheriff’s department said.
