Madisonville teen indicted for attempted fetal homicide

Posted: Updated:


19-year-old Daylyn Jones was indicted for attempted fetal homicide third degree after reportedly admitting he tainted a drink to try and end his girl friend's pregnancy.

That charge is a misdemeanor and the case will stay in district court.


The Hopkins County teenager charged with attempted fetal homicide was in court Wednesday afternoon.

Police say 19-year-old Daylyn Jones admitted to, "providing a tainted drink with the intent of terminating a pregnancy without the mother's knowledge."

Police say Jones put ibuprofen in a slushie for his girlfriend, she drank some, noticed a strange taste, and told her parents, who contacted police.

Detectives say they have Jones on surveillance video leaving a nearby gas station with the slushie.

The judge decided to keep Jones' bond at $250,000 cash, and the case will now head to the grand jury.
