Fifth family member Arrested After Beating Pregnant 14 Yr Old Girl to Force abortion, Attempt to Charcoal Grill Fetus | | Dallas Morning News

A 14-year-old girl who was impregnated by a relative was beaten by four other family members to induce an abortion, Dallas police say.

After the eight-month pregnant girl delivered, the family tried to cover up the crime by burning the stillborn baby on a charcoal grill at a Pleasant Grove home, police say.

Cedric Jones, 27; Sharon Jones, 45; Cecila McDonald, 25; and Lonnell McDonald, 27, were arrested Tuesday on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity. They were being held in the Dallas County jail, with bail set at $150,000 each.

The relationships among the suspects and the victim were not clear late Tuesday.

The hours-long attack allegedly occurred in 2013, but the girl stayed quiet until another woman, who said she witnessed part of the assault, took her to a police station May 22.

The girl said she became pregnant after she was sexually assaulted by a family member in August 2012 in the 1200 block of North Masters Drive, near Lake June Road, according to an affidavit.

She told police she was a virgin before she was raped and “did not tell anyone about the sexual assault because … she was embarrassed.”
