Three additional people have been arrested for jumping on a pregnant teen’s belly in order to force an abortion after she was raped.
According to Fox 11, an arrest warrant affidavit revealed the victim was raped and impregnated by her brother back in 2012 when she was 13-years-old. She had been staying with family members at the time. When they found out they grew nervous because they didn’t want Child Protective Services removing their children.
Court documents revealed Sharon Jones, 47, was sentenced to 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to family violence assault. Her children Cecilia McDonald, 28, and Cedric Jones, Jr., 29, pleaded guilty to the same charge and received seven and five years.
Back in 2016 Lonnell McDonald, 29, was sentenced to 10 years for aggravated assault.
The teen was about 8 months when the incident occurred and delivered the baby stillborn after they tried to force the abortion by kicking, bouncing and punching her belly. She unfortunately never received any medical attention.
The affidavit also stated the suspects tried to get rid of the baby’s body on a charcoal grill. However, when that didn’t work Sharon Jones paid Cedric Jones $25 to stash them in an unknown location.
Once police were involved, seven children were removed from the home. The victim, who is now 19-years-old, went to live with a foster family following the incident.
Her brother Robert Cayald, 24, was arrested for raping her. His case is still pending because he was found incompetent to stand trial.
