A Kansas man has been charged with first degree murder for lacing his 8-10 week pregnant girlfriend's pancake with an abortion drug.
Scott Robert Bollig, 30, according to charging documents posted on the attorney general's website, committed the act on or about January 26, 2014.
"Bolling did, then and there, unlawfully, feloniously and intentionally commit an overt act, to wit: putting a crushed form of a medication used to terminate an intrauterine pregnancy on food," charging documents state.
Prosecutors are also asking the jury to consider charges of attempted murder in the first degree, aggravated battery and distribution of adulterated food.
Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt on February 25 filed formal criminal charges against Bollig, of WaKeeney, who was arrested February 20. Bond was set at $500,000.
The Kansas Attorney General's Office is prosecuting the case at the request of the Trego County Attorney Tony Potter, who will assist with the prosecution. Charges are merely accusations. Individuals are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
