Three people in West Virginia have been charged in the case of a sexually abused teen whose aunt allegedly forced her to drink turpentine in an attempt to abort her unborn baby.
The 15-year-old girl was hospitalized and is now in the care of the state says a state police criminal complaint, reported by the Associated Press.
The complaint states the girl was living with her mother and Daniel Atwell, 24, whom the mother reportedly gave permission to have sex with her minor daughter.
When the girl became pregnant, the mother reportedly gave her daughter a morning-after abortion pill, but the drug did not terminate the pregnancy.
The girl said her aunt, Sherry Kirk, then forced her to drink turpentine to attempt an abortion. (Read more from “Three Charged After Aunt Allegedly Forced Teen to Drink Turpentine to Abort Baby” HERE)
