JAILED for 25 years for the attempted destruction of his (unborn) daughter

I came across this shocking article today. Whats most interesting is that there were charges for the attempted 'destruction' of his unborn daughter. Why would this be so when so many 'destroy' the child in the womb through abortion?

article from

Hammer attack father-to-be jailed

A man has been jailed for 25 years for trying to murder his heavily pregnant partner and attempting to destroy their unborn baby.

Simon Morris, 37, had been having an affair and would have inherited money from Nerys Price's will, Mold Crown Court was told.

The prosecution said he had made the attack look like burglary gone wrong.

He denied trying to kill Ms Price, also 37, as she slept beside him at their home in Prestatyn, Denbighshire.

Jailing Morris for 25 years for the attempted murder and a further 25 years for the attempted destruction of his daughter, to be served concurrently, Judge Merfyn Hughes QC said he had committed a "shocking" crime.

"The jury have convicted you on the basis of compelling evidence," he said.

It was a wicked and callous attempt to rid yourself of a partner who was willing to have your child
Judge Merfyn Hughes QC

"To have tried to kill your partner within just a few weeks of her giving birth is, in my opinion, quite a shocking and aggravating feature.

"It was a wicked and callous attempt to rid yourself of a partner who was willing to have your child and who had done nothing but give you love and affection."

Morris hit Ms Price twice on the head with the sharp end of a bricklayer's hammer when she was 38 weeks pregnant with his child, the trial heard.

Prosecutor Patrick Harrington QC said Morris then made it look as if an intruder had been responsible.

But a random burglar would have nothing to gain and everything to lose from attacking a heavily pregnant woman, he told the court.

When Ms Price woke up she asked Morris to call the police but remembered seeing sevens and nines on his phone as he tried to to dial 999, she told the jury.

"It appeared that he was trying to ring the police but was clearly missing the numbers," she said.

After contacting the emergency services herself, she was taken to hospital where she later gave birth by emergency caesarean section to her daughter Freya. She was treated for two skull fractures and underwent emergency surgery.

Both have since made a full recovery, the jury was told.
