Sometimes, the human race disappoints and appalls you in ways you never thought possible. A 28-year-old man named Kenneth Turner got his ex-girlfriend pregnant. But he didn't want the child. So, instead of trying to figure out what he was going to do/how he was going to deal, he allegedly broke into her apartment and stomped on her stomach -- with both feet -- in order to kill the unborn baby.
According to the complaint that was filed, Turner entered his ex's apartment last week and beat and assaulted her for three hours. He reportedly kicked, punched, hit, and choked her numerous times; and for his finale, he ordered her to lay on her back so he could stomp on her abdomen -- oh, all while telling her she didn't deserve the baby. When she was eventually found, she had bruises all over her body, as well as vaginal bleeding and, obviously, pain in her abdomen.
I've been blogging for a decent amount of time, and I have to say: This could be one of the most disgusting, horrifying stories I've ever heard. That's Turner's solution for an unwanted pregnancy? Beating the everliving crap out of his ex-girlfriend? And stomping her stomach? WTF? Ugh, I seriously am nauseated just thinking about this.
Turner's been taken in and charged (and is being held on $500,000 bail), and if the allegations prove to be true, he's in for a seriously rude awakening. He could be facing charges of first-degree attempted murder of an unborn child, as well as domestic assault. Guess some people would rather do time than pay child support (or wear a condom). Hopefully, if he's convicted, he'll be in there for life. Disgusting.
I mean, how appalling is this?
