I don't even want to think about what I would do in that situation.

One of the articles said that the father declined to allow the investigators to search his property without a warrant. I don't think there's anything wrong with that. They did come back the next day with one. Some of the comments people are posting are focusing on that being "covering up." I don't agree.

Nope! Legally he is allowed to refuse. There is nothing wrong with that.

Sounds like a nasty situation all around :-( We have a case nearby...a woman 8 months pregnant was found dead in the ditch on a country road near the police shooting range. Turns out that she was murdered by the married officer who was baby daddy...and he did it while on duty. OMG. I just cannot imagine. Dumping her body near the range certainly was NOT brilliant on his part...especially if he thought it wouldn't look a tad bit suspicious!

Wow. It doesn't sound like this guy was exactly detective material. How sad. Is he being charged with two murders since she was so far along?

I'm not sure...I think there are charges related to the baby's death tho. OK, here is what I found: he's charged with first-degree murder, felony firearm and assault of a pregnant individual resulting in death of a fetus. Personally, I think it should be two counts of first degree murder and who knows, maybe that charge will be added.

Here it would definately be 2 first degree murder charges. Doesn't even matter how far along she was. She could have been 8 WEEKS pregnant and he would still be charged. Sounds like a sad sad situation. Hope they fry him.

I'm sorry, Mona. This has to be hard on everyone. How old is your son?

My brother had a rough few years, too. It started at about age 17 until he got off probation at 25. He was done with the felony type of behavior when he was arrested at 17, but he was making everyone nervous with his behavior while on probation. He wanted to be a normal 21 year old guy, but of course he couldn't while on probation. He has completely changed now and has a good job and is married to the girl who stood by him through all of it.

He was 18 for the first felony, turned 19 while that case was moving through the court system.
