Man accused of trying to kill unborn child arrested in NY
APPLETON, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say a man charged a decade ago in Wisconsin with trying to kill his girlfriend's unborn child has turned up in New York.
Sheriff's officials say the U.S. Border Patrol stopped a vehicle in Malone, New York Friday because of suspicious criminal activity. Manishkumar Patel was a passenger in the vehicle. Agents took Patel and the driver to the Border Patrol office where they were fingerprinted. USA Today Network-Wisconsin says records showed Patel was wanted in Outagamie County and he was arrested.
The 43-year-old Patel is charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide, recklessly endangering safety, stalking and other charges in Wisconsin. Patel is accused of spiking his girlfriend's drink with an abortion-inducing drug. He was charged in November of 2007. Patel's attorney did not immediately return a call for comment.
