From the Daily News:
Queens prosecutors say boyfriend Derrick Redd, angry with Delain for refusing to have an abortion, stabbed her six times in the stomach, killing her and the unborn boy she planned to name Aidan.
"I either avoid the problem or I eliminate it," Redd said, according to investigators who interviewed him after Delain's body was found.
Redd, 36, faces a murder charge for the Oct. 25, 2008, slaying of Delain, 25, but nothing for the death of the unborn fetus.
To Delain's mother, Towanda Wimms, that's an injustice state lawmakers need to correct.
"It's like this baby is not being looked at as a victim and that's ridiculous," said Wimms, 43. "There were two victims here. This baby was intentionally stabbed."
Redd is to appear in Queens Supreme Court on Monday, with a trial slated for early next year.
Meanwhile, Wimms has thrust herself into the middle of a battle in Albany that pits longtime rivals in the abortion debate against one another over a bill that would make it a crime to take the life of an unborn child during the commission of a homicide.
