Pregnant Alabama woman shot in stomach loses baby and is indicted for manslaughter

Pregnant Alabama woman shot in stomach loses baby and is indicted for manslaughter
In a highly unusual case, an Alabama woman has been indicted for manslaughter after her preborn baby died from a gunshot wound… and she wasn’t the one who pulled the trigger.

According to news reports, Marshae Jones, 27, got into an altercation with another woman over Jones’ baby’s father. CNN notes that Pleasant Grove police Lt. Danny Reid said the other woman, Ebony Jemison, “react[ed] [to] defend herself” with a gun. Reid said, “It was the mother of the child who initiated and continued the fight which resulted in the death of her own unborn baby…. The investigation showed that the only true victim in this was the unborn baby.” A grand jury declined to indict Jemison, instead bringing charges against Jones for the death of her five-month-old preborn baby, a girl. Jones has another daughter at home, age six, reports the New York Times. Click here for more.
