Man Indicted For Killing Unborn Child Of Ex-Girlfriend
(Memphis) A Memphis man has been indicted in a shooting last November that left his pregnant ex-girlfriend injured and killed her five-month-old fetus.
Jonathan Turner, 32, the father of the child, is charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.
The shooting happened November 25, when Darmeisha Gross was walking near South Parkway and Wellington.
Prosecutors say Gross tried to run but was shot in the lower back.
Gross told investigators she was on the ground when Turner fired four more shots.
Gross said she pretended to be dead and when Turner left, she flagged down a car for help.
She was taken to a hospital in critical condition where her unborn child was pronounced dead.
Turner is being held without bond in the Shelby County Jail.
