10 Year Sentence In Fetus Death Case

Associated Press - February 23, 2016 9:08 am

A Kansas prosecutor says the death penalty "is on the table" in the case of two people who investigators say fled to Mexico as suspects in a triple homicide last October.

WAKEENEY, Kan. (AP) – A northwest Kansas man charged in connection to the killing of his ex-girlfriend’s fetus has been sentenced to nearly 10 years in prison.

Thirty-two-year-old Scott Bollig of WaKeeney received a sentence of 117 months Thursday in the January 2014 death of his ex-girlfriend’s 8- to 10-week old fetus. He was found guilty in November of conspiracy to commit murder. He was acquitted of murder, aggravated battery and distribution of adulterated food.

Bollig was accused of causing his ex-girlfriend to lose her fetus by lacing her food with the drug mifepristone.
