Kansas man accused of causing unborn baby's death

WAKEENEY, Kan. (AP) - A 30-year-old northwest Kansas man is accused of killing his girlfriend's unborn child by crushing an abortion-causing medication over a pancake she ate.

The Salina Journal (http://bit.ly/VXcTx6 ) reports 30-year-old Scott Bollig of WaKeeney was bound over for trial after a two-day preliminary hearing this week on charges of first-degree mureer and aggravated battery.

Prosecutors say that after Naomi Abbott lost her baby on Jan. 31, doctors found traces of mifepristone in the woman's blood.

WaKeeney Police Chief Terry Eberle testified on Thursday that Bollig admitted lacing food he served to Abbott with an abortion-inducing drug he bought over the Internet.

Bollig's attorney questioned whether investigators had coerced Bollig into making those statements, or if they had properly read him his rights.
