The Herald in Rock Hill
CHESTER, S.C. —
A Chester man in jail on charges that he stabbed his pregnant girlfriend has now been charged with the death of the unborn boy.
The Herald of Rock Hill reported 39-year-old Aris Nichols was charged Wednesday with the death of an unborn child during a violent crime.
Nichols faces up to 30 years in prison if he is convicted.
Police say 21-year-old Brittany Jordan was several months pregnant when she was stabbed April 26 in the couple's home just west of Chester. Their unborn son , did not survive.
Prosecutor Doug Barfield says the delay in the charge was prompted by the need to talk with the medical personnel who treated Jordan.
Barfield says the law does not require proof that the suspect intended to kill the unborn child.
