WAKEENEY, Kansas – The Kansas attorney general has filed a first-degree murder charge against a 30-year-old western Kansas man accused of killing an 8- to 10-week-old fetus.

Scott Robert Bollig of WaKeeney was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder.

The criminal complaint filed in Trego County by Attorney General Derek Schmidt accuses Bollig of putting a crushed medication used to end pregnancies on a pancake for a pregnant woman to eat. The incident allegedly occurred Jan. 26.

The complaint, which doesn’t name the medication or say when the fetus died, includes an alternative charge of attempted murder.

Bollig’s lawyer, Daniel Walter, says he’ll challenge the statute used to charge Bollig. The statute makes it illegal to kill or wound an unborn child during an attack on the mother.
