Jurors Hear Testimony in Case of Teen Charged with Murder of Pregnant Girlfriend

By The Law Offices of Hager & Schwartz, P.A  Feb. 23, 2012 4:48p

A local teen has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend who was pregnant with his child. Both were 17 at the time of the incident and the girlfriend, S.R., was 8 months pregnant with the defendant’s son. The prosecutor for the case said the defendant, E.B., had met up with his girlfriend late at night at a local grocery store parking lot. It is then alleged that E.B. shot her twice and then fled the location. S.R. was found dead at the scene with two gunshot wounds—one to her head and one to her abdomen. The prosecutor argues that no one else would have had a reason to direct a shot into her abdomen, thus killing the fetus. There is no physical evidence that puts E.B. at the scene of the murder but one of his friends led police to the gun used in the crime and another friend admitted to lying about being with the defendant at the time the incident took place. If you or someone you care about has been charged with the serious crime of murder in Miami-Dade, Broward County or surrounding areas, speak with a Miami criminal defense lawyer immediately.
