In an attempt to kill his unborn child, Theophilous Washington suggested his pregnant girlfriend have a drink water that she was unaware he poured bleach into.
According to The New York Daily News, the 20 year old Millersville University student confessed to police he intentionally poured the harmful chemical liquid into the glass of water because he didn’t want his girlfriend to have their child.
“The charges are twisted and the intended result nothing short of horrifying,” District Attorney Craig Stedman said in a statement Friday. (Oct. 28) The college junior was charged with criminal attempt to commit first-degree murder of an unborn child along with reckless endangering.
The District Attorney’s office said the two were together Thursday night into Friday morning and prior to the victim leaving, Washington recommended she have some water. When the young lady made it back to her dorm on campus, she felt a burning sensation in her throat, threw up and called 911.
Fortunately, a doctor examined the woman and concluded her and her unborn child weren’t harmed. Washington remains in police custody on a $1 million bail pending his Nov. 4 preliminary hearing.
