Man accused of trying to kill unborn child

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- A 36-year-old man is accused of trying to kill his unborn child by punching his Wisconsin ex-girlfriend in the stomach.

Charles Dehart is charged in Brown County with attempted first-degree intentional homicide of an unborn child, and five other charges.

Prosecutors say Dehart hit the Green Bay woman in the stomach in an attempt to kill his child.

Press-Gazette Media reports the woman told investigators Dehart said "kill the baby" while he was hitting her.

Police say the woman had numerous bruises on her body and a cigarette burn on her abdomen.

Court documents say the charges are related to incidents from Jan. 20 to Jan. 22.

Dehart is due in court Friday.

His defense attorney did not immediately return a phone message Monday.
