Warrant Issued For Teen Accused Of Killing Unborn Baby

(CINCINNATI) -- Cincinnati police have issued a warrant for a 15-year-old boy accused of assaulting his 7-months pregnant former girlfriend, killing her fetus.

Alfonso Price is wanted for aggravated murder and felonious assault.

According to police, an autopsy performed on the fetus and the Hamilton County Coroner's Office ruled the cause of death as a skull fracture.

Police say Price and two other juveniles assaulted the 18-year-old girl, Kerria Anderson, on Wednesday night on Race St. while she was standing at a bus stop.

Ohio law allows a murder charge against someone accused of killing a fetus that would have been able to live outside the womb.

Anderson, who has a 1-year-old daughter and was due to deliver a second girl Aug. 20, remained in a hospital Monday.

After the attack, Anderson rode a bus to the nearby Hamilton County Justice Center and told authorities what happened, police said.

Anderson's grandmother, Betty Payne, said Price was the father of Anderson's unborn child.

"He wanted her to get an abortion because they were not together," Payne, 58, said. "He didn't want his baby raised by another man."

Price has an arrest record that includes domestic violence charges, police said. His mother, Keisha Pitts, 34, is in a Hamilton Count jail facing multiple charges, including domestic violence.

Price is known to frequent the Over-the-Rhine area. Anyone with information is urged to call Crimestoppers at 352-3040.
