Abortion Pill Leads To Murder Charge After Fetus Dies (Image 1)

A Georgia woman faces a murder charge after the death of her five-and-a-half-month-old fetus she delivered in an abortion attempt.

Kenlissa Jones, 23, was charged with malice murder and possession of a dangerous drug.

WALB-TV (http://bit.ly/1Irtzju ) reports Jones took a Cytotec abortion pill she purchased on the Internet and delivered the fetus Saturday night. A neighbor drove Jones to the hospital, but she delivered the baby boy in the car.

Officials said the boy died after about half an hour at the hospital. Jones was arrested and taken to the Dougherty County Jail.

Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards said the case will likely go before a grand jury. He said Georgia and federal laws will need to be explored. Under Georgia law, no abortions are authorized after the first trimester except in medical facilities.
