[Christian News Network] An Ohio woman and her boyfriend are both facing an involuntary manslaughter charge after their newborn son was found deceased in a shoebox. It is alleged that the mother ingested pills to personally induce labor and end the child’s life as the couple, who have one child together, did not want a second baby.
Kaline Gillum, 21 and Braden Mull, 25, appeared in court on Monday after being indicted on the charge, as well as endangering children, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence.
According to prosecutors, Gillum purchased misoprostol from India last September, which induces labor and can cause an abortion. She ingested 12 of the pills, and the next day, gave birth to her son in her apartment — who was apparently alive upon exiting the womb.
“The intention was to induce labor and terminate her pregnancy,” Assistant Licking County Prosecutor Jenny Gonzalez-Wells told reporters. “She was in her third trimester, so she [was] between 28 and 29 weeks pregnant at the time.”
