California man charged with murder after allegedly forcing girlfriend to induce miscarriage

A California man faces a first-degree murder charge after allegedly holding his girlfriend at gunpoint and forcing her to take pills and effectively abort her own child.

Police arrested the man, 23-year-old Jagmeet Sandhu, on Wednesday after receiving a report from someone who claimed that a pregnant family member had been held at gunpoint by her boyfriend.

It's unclear what pills Sandhu forced the unnamed women to take, but she eventually miscarried at a hospital. The gestational age of the unborn baby is unknown.

Inmate records showed Sandhu faced six felony charges and was scheduled to appear in court on Friday, according to NBC News. His six felony charges included first-degree murder and assault with a firearm.
