A young woman in the United Kingdom, is mourning the loss of her unborn baby who died in the womb after her boyfriend kicked her in the stomach.

Hemsworth police said that they have arrested 37-year-old Stuart Samson, after being accused of assaulting his girlfriend.

In court, Samson pleaded guilty to assault causing actual bodily harm.

Judge Guy Kearl sentenced Samson to serve 2 years and 9 months in prison.

19-year-old Jessy Johnson slammed the lenient sentence, and criticized prosecutors for not charging her boyfriend with murder in connection with the death of her unborn daughter, Mila Francis.

Johnson claims that prosecutors told her that since her baby wasn’t born, they did not consider her human.

According to the police investigation, Johnson and Samson were at a bar together five days before Mila Francis was supposed to be born.

An argument broke out, during which Samson kicked Johnson in the stomach.

Johnson suffered terrible pain as a result of the kick.

Johnson went to her mother’s home because she no longer wanted to be with her boyfriend.

The following day, Johnson realized that her baby was not moving.

She went to the hospital, where tests showed that the baby had died in her womb.

Doctors later delivered the dead baby, and Johnson was allowed to hold her for some time.
