- A New York City man was convicted yesterday of killing his pregnant girlfriend:
Cops previously said Derrick Redd, 38, of Jamaica admitted that he ‘hadn’t believed the child was his and urged Niasha Delain, 25, to have an abortion.
Delain, a bank teller, was stabbed 20 to 30 times in her stomach and torso on Oct. 25, 2008, in her South Ozone Park apartment, according to the Queens district attorney’s office.
The fetus was stabbed five times.
New York doesn’t recognize the unborn child as a victim but according to the NY Daily News, Delain’s mother has started a campaign to change the law.

Carrying her new-born baby in her arms, the 28-year-old stood holding a sign, reading “I became pregnant following my engagement. But my fiance’s mother broke us up when I was six months into the pregnancy. She then tried to force me to have an abortion right up until my eighth month.”
On the placard, she listed her complaints, using the real name of the professor and her department.
