Dallas man who stomped on pregnant girl gets 10 years


DALLAS, Texas (AP) — Prosecutors say a Dallas man must serve 10 years in prison for stomping on the belly of a pregnant alleged rape victim who then miscarried.

28-year-old Lonnell McDonald was sentenced Tuesday after being convicted of aggravated assault in the March 2013 attack.

Investigators say the girl, who’s now 17, told relatives she’d been sexually assaulted by another man in August 2012. Several people then allegedly attacked her to force a miscarriage.

She delivered a stillborn child at a relative’s home. An affidavit says the fetus was put on a grill in a failed attempt to burn the still-missing remains.

McDonald and three others are charged with conspiracy to commit capital murder. Another man was charged with sexual assault.

The victim now lives in foster care.
