  • Man being prosecuted in New Mexico under federal fetus law

    Alburquerque, New Mexico (AP)

    A man accused of beating a pregnant woman to death also is being prosecuted under a 2004 federal law that makes it a separate crime to kill a fetus while causing the death or injury of the mother.

    It might be the first time the Unborn Victims of Violence Act signed by President Bush has been used. U.S. Attorney Greg Fouratt said his office’s research found “no other case in the country in which that section (of law) has been charged,” the Albuquerque Journal reported in a copyright story.
