Aitkin Man Charged For Trying To Kill Wife’s Unborn Baby
A 24-year-old Aitkin man is being charged with attempted murder of an unborn child after he allegedly kicked and punched his pregnant wife in the stomach.
Rory Northrup was arrested at his home in rural Aitkin last Thursday. He is charged with first-degree premeditated attempted murder of an unborn child and third-degree assault.
Northrup’s wife, a 29-year-old woman, reports that Northrup had beaten her and allegedly threatened to kill her unborn baby.
The woman was taken to a Brainerd hospital, but the Brainerd Dispatch reports that both the woman and her unborn child are going to recover.
Bail for Northrup is set at $500,000 with no conditions or $100,000 with conditions. Northrup is still in jail at this time.
