In Hennepin County District Court, Paul Peterson, 20-year-old, pleaded guilty to punching a friend’s pregnant girlfriend in the abdomen with the alleged intention of killing the baby, for money. News stories also report Mr. Peterson will provide testimony implicating his friend, Dameon Gatson in the plot to attack Shyloe Linde at her apartment in an attempt to end her pregnancy. Allegedly Peterson states that Gatson told him he wanted Linde to miscarry because he didn’t want the baby. News stories also report that Gatson offered Peterson $200 for the attack, but actually paid him $40 when it was done.
New stories report the attack on Ms. Linde occurred in April 2007, whereupon she went into labor and it was discovered that her baby sustained mortal injury from the event. The baby died on May 1, 2007.
