Wausau police have arrested a 33-year-old man, accusing him of trying to use a prescription drug to kill his unborn child.
Jeffery Smith was arrested last week after a brief investigation. Officers say a pregnant woman told them she thought the father of her child, Smith, had put something in her water bottle. She said he had tried to convince her to have an abortion. When she found residue in the bottom of the bottle she called police, they sent it to the State Crime Lab for testing and it was found to have a drug present which is used to terminate pregnancies. The mother and baby weren't hurt. Smith is in the Marathon County Jail.
