FBI: Abortion pill switch is murder

TAMPA, FL (WFLX) - Federal authorities say the son of a Tampa-area fertility doctor is accused of tricking his girlfriend into taking an abortion drug and killing her unborn child.

A federal grand jury indicted 28-year-old John Andrew Welden on Tuesday. Prosecutors say Welden forged the doctor's signature on a prescription for Cytotec, relabeled a pill bottle as Amoxicillin, and told the woman he wanted her to take the antibiotic.

Weldon remains in jail after bond was denied. He faces up to life in prison.
