An Oklahoma man is facing murder charges after police said he attacked his pregnant girlfriend, killing her and her unborn child.
KOCO reports officers responded Monday to a domestic assault and battery in Tulsa. Police say 22-year-old Colby Wilson beat his live-in girlfriend, 21-year-old Allyssa Fielding, to the point she had no pulse.
Wilson’s mother performed CPR on Fielding, who was about six months pregnant. Doctors found the baby no longer had a heartbeat.
Fielding was declared brain dead after suffering multiple severe injuries, including collapsed lungs and skull fractures. Police said she died Tuesday night.
“Almost every inch of her body was covered in bruises,” Public Information Officer Jeanne Pierce told KTUL.
Wilson now faces first-degree murder charges. He was convicted of assaulting Fielding in 2017 and spent about a year in jail.
