Man kills his unborn son by kicking girlfriend in the stomach during ninth month because she refused an abortion
A man was arrested on a charge of child destruction after allegedly kicking his pregnant girlfriend in the stomach because she refused to have an abortion, police in the United Kingdom said.
London police said that they have arrested 22-year-old Kevin Wilson, after being accused of killing his unborn son by assaulting 22-year-old Malorie Bantala, who was nine months pregnant.
He was charged with one count of child destruction and one count of grievous bodily harm. Wilson and an accomplice will stand trial at the Old Bailey.
According to the police investigation, Bantala met Wilson several years ago, when they studied at the same college. They had a sexual relationship for a year, and then remained on friendly terms.
They also occasionally had sex.
When Bantala notified her boyfriend that she became pregnant, he reacted badly, saying he was not ready to be a father.
Wilson accused her of being selfish, and made two attempts to get her to abort the baby. He also spread rumors that he was not the father of the unborn child, and that she had been sleeping around with other men.
Wilson then decided to kick the baby out of his girlfriend. One night, Wilson and his 17-year-old accomplice, met Bantala on the street outside her home around 8:00 p.m.
Wilson then kicked Bantala in the stomach numerous times.
Witnesses heard Wilson screaming “I'll kill you.” Bantala was rushed to a hospital, but doctors could not save the life of the unborn child.
She needed a Caesarean section to remove the dead baby, and emergency surgery to stop internal bleeding and repair broken bones in her hand.
