Cleveland Kidnappers May Also Have Induced Abortion in their Kidnapped/Raped Victims, by Beating

Via Twitchy.

Terrible thing. Ten years of their lives gone to kidnappers, and up to five deliberate abortions-by-beating.

You can't get the death penalty for kidnapping.

However, in Ohio, if I'm reading this right, you can be charged with aggravated murder for the unlawful termination of a pregnancy, and aggravated murder opens the possibility of the death penalty.

If anyone is an Ohio lawyer, or just a lawyer generally, please let me know if I'm reading that right or wrong. My problem is that I expected to say that a murder plus the termination of a pregnancy would result in an aggravated murder charge-- that is, the murder of a pregnant woman serves as the underlying murder charge, and the death of the fetus then becomes the aggravation of that murder into a possible capital offense.

But as I read it -- which I think is probably an erroneous reading -- it seems to say instead that the termination of a pregnancy without the death of the mother is aggravated murder, which doesn't sound right to me. It sounds like too big a "win" on the point for the pro-life people; it sounds like the sort of thing we'd never hear the end of from the left, were this the case.

Nice Family: The main perp's daughter was jailed for 25 years for the attempted murder of her 11 month old baby.

On the Law: Allah reads it the way I do, and so does this guy:


So it does appear that if those bodies are found (or even if they're not-- witness testimony can establish the deaths) these guys may get the needle.
