An Ohio woman took pills to induce labor to terminate her pregnancy. The baby boy was born alive, but the woman and her husband did nothing to save the child, leading to his death. (Note: The baby in the above picture is not the same as the one in this story.)
Kalina Gillum and Braden Mull were indicted last week on felony charges of involuntary manslaughter (first degree), child endangerment (third degree), tampering with evidence (third degree), and abuse of a corpse (fifth degree) after they induced labor and left the child to die. They couple appeared in Licking County court on Monday via video monitor, WCMH reported.
Licking County Prosecuting Attorney William Hayes said that the couple ordered misoprostol tablets from India and that Gillum took 12 of the pills on September 18, 2019 to induce labor. Gillum was in her third trimester, at least 28 or 29 weeks pregnant, when the couple decided they didn’t want another child. They already have a three-year-old child, who is no longer in their custody.
“At no time did either one of them ever call 911 or seek emergency medical treatment for the child,” Hayes said.
