WAKEENEY, Kan. -- The Kansas Attorney General's Office has announced charges against a Wakeeney man arrested last week on charges of murder and domestic battery.
Derek Schmidt's office says 30-year-old Scott Bollig is charged with first degree murder, aggravated battery and distribution of adulterated food. Bollig is accused of poisoning a pregnant woman causing her to lose her baby.
The attorney general's office accuses Bollig of crushing up a pill that is used to terminate pregnancies, in a pancake, and then feeding it to the woman. She was 8 to 10 weeks pregnant at the time and lost the baby.
prosecutors are also asking the jury to consider the alternative charge of attempted first degree murder in addition to the first degree murder charge. The Kansas Attorney General's Office is prosecuting the case at the request of the Trego County Attorney's Office.
