COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - A man is being held without bond on charges he shot and killed his pregnant girlfriend during an argument.
Columbus police say 22-year-old Jovan Elshawn Thompson shot 22-year-old Sarahonica Thrasher in the head early Friday morning. Thompson drove Thrasher to the hospital, where she underwent emergency surgery to deliver the couple's baby.
Thrasher later died. Authorities say the baby is in good condition.
Thompson has been charged with aggravated assault, murder, family violence and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. He is in the Muscogee County jail.
Jail officials had no information Saturday on whether Thompson has an attorney.
