JAMESTOWN, Ky. (AP) -- Following a grand jury indictment, police have added charges of fetal homicide and persistent felony offender against a man being held in the death of a central Kentucky runner.
According to police, these charges are in addition to the original charges of murder, kidnapping, robbery and tampering with physical evidence facing 28-year-old Christopher W. Allman.
The additional charges are the result of an indictment returned by the Russell County Grand Jury after a hearing on Friday, June 22.
Police say Allman attacked 31-year-old Sarah Hart on June 14.
Hart was running with her sister and became dehydrated. She was killed when she returned to her car. Investigators say Allman said he killed Hart in order to steal money. Searchers found Hart dead in a field just off the highway where she had been running.
The child would have been Hart's fourth.
