A prosecutor says discussions about a possible plea bargain are under way in the case of an Ohio man accused of trying to force his pregnant girlfriend at gunpoint to get an abortion.
Police say 28-year-old Dominic Holt-Reid pulled a gun Oct. 6 on his girlfriend, Yolanda Burgess, and forced her to drive to an abortion clinic.
Authorities say the procedure never happened because Burgess managed to slip a note to a clinic employee, who called police.
Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien told The Associated Press in a statement Wednesday that his office and lawyers for Holt-Reid have been discussing a potential plea.
A message left with Holt-Reid's lawyer seeking comment wasn't immediately returned.
O'Brien approved charging Hold-Reid under a 1996 fetal homicide law. Holt-Reid has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, kidnapping and other charges.
