Woman Indicted for Homicide After Kicking Pregnant Woman in Stomach, Killing Baby

A 29-year-old woman who allegedly kicked a pregnant woman in the stomach and groin, causing her to prematurely give birth to a baby that died, has been indicted on negligent homicide and second-degree battery charges.

Calcasieu Parish grand jurors returned an indictment Thursday against Tanya Renee McBride.

McBride was charged in the death of Jase Dougay which resulted from injuries sustained by the mother.

The battery count says McBride kicked the mother, who was 19 weeks pregnant.
