The Kansas Attorney General’s Office on Tuesday charged a Wakeeney man accused of feeding an abortion-inducing medication to a pregnant woman with first-degree murder.
Scott R. Bollig, 30, is accused of intentionally killing the 8- to 10-week-old fetus by putting a crushed form of the medication on a pancake eaten by the woman, according to a criminal complaint filed in Trego County District Court and posted on the attorney general’s website. He is also charged with aggravated battery of the woman and the distribution of adulterated food, a misdemeanor.
Kansas Bureau of Investigation agents and Wakeeney police arrested Bollig on Feb. 20 on suspicion of murder and domestic battery, according to the Kansas Attorney General’s Office. He is being held on $500,000 bond.
In the complaint, prosecutors offered one count of attempted first-degree murder as an alternative to the first-degree murder charge.
