She was ready to give the gift of life, and he took it away from her.
Prosecutors say 34-year-old Shervaughn Remy slipped his girlfriend abortion pills while the two had intercourse, causing the stillborn birth of her 14-week-old fetus, the New York Post reports.
The Brooklyn, N.Y. man was arrested on Valentine's Day last year. He turned down a plea deal to felony abortion on Monday.
The woman admitted herself to a hospital due to intense pain in her abdomen, the paper reports. A doctor pulled two pills of the abortion drug Cytotec from inside her. Several hours later, she delivered the stillborn fetus, according to the court complaint.
Remy maintains his innocence. His lawyer cited the fact that the alleged victim doesn't want an order of protection or to press charges, the Independent reports.
