TAMPA BAY – Federal authorities arrested a local doctor’s son, who they say tricked his pregnant girlfriend into taking an abortion pill, killing their unborn child.
John Andrew Welden, 28, is now facing first-degree murder and interfering with interstate commerce charges.
According to a federal arrest affidavit, Welden swapped out his girlfriend’s antibiotics with abortion pills, specifically Cytotec.
