Pennsylvania student faces new bleach-in-water charge

A central Pennsylvania university student already accused of trying to abort his girlfriend's pregnancy by putting bleach in her water has now been charged with trying to kill her in the process.

LNP (http://bit.ly/2hgvmTY ) reports Lancaster County prosecutors added the attempted homicide charge Tuesday against 20-year-old Theophilous Washington, of Washington, D.C.

The former Millersville University student is already awaiting trial on attempted homicide and reckless endangerment charges for attempting to kill the woman's unborn child and endangering the woman. Investigators say he had the woman drink from the bleach-tainted water bottle Oct. 28, causing her to fall ill in her dorm. She called 911; the unborn child wasn't harmed.

Washington remains jailed. His attorney didn't immediately comment Wednesday on the new charge.
