Prosecutors: Woman given drugs to end pregnancy

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Madison area farmer is accused of secretly lacing his girlfriend's drinks with veterinary drugs in order to end her pregnancy.

Dane County prosecutors say 23-year-old Daniel Bliefernicht was surprised and frustrated by the unexpected pregnancy, so he mixed the vet drugs in three beverage bottles. The drugs are used to terminate a pregnancy in cows and can cause uterine contractions.

A criminal complaint says Bliefernicht's girlfriend, Sarah Pienkowski, thought the beverages tasted odd, so she took them to her mother's house and later turned them over to police.

The State Journal reports Bliefernicht faces five felony charges. Pienkowski gave birth to a healthy girl.
