A 25-yr-old woman is accused of beating a pregnant woman to the extent that she lost her baby.
Deshay Carter, 25, of Baton Rouge, is accused of going to a residence on Mason Ave. around 5:30am on April 23, 2022. Carter is the victim’s child’s father’s new girlfriend.
Carter allegedly grabbed the victim by her clothing and dragged her outside where she’s accused of hitting her in the face with a pistol.
The victim told police she remembered hitting the ground on the side of her stomach. She added that Carter told her “I told you I was going to get you b*tch.”
That’s when the victim said Carter hit her body several times until she went unconscious. When the victim woke up a few minutes later by her toddler crying, she called police. Officers did respond to the scene for a home invasion.
The victim said she left town with her children and did not return home until Sunday evening. After the alleged attack, the victim said her pain continued to get worse. She added she did start bleeding after the attack and it continued through the weekend. Early Monday morning, the victim said she did call EMS and was transported to Woman’s Hospital.
That’s when she was told her 16-wk-old baby had passed sometime over the weekend. Prior to this one incident, the victim said she did not have any issues with her pregnancy.
Officers said the victim had visible bruising to her eye, arms and torso and was very sore.
An autopsy on the unborn child found the baby died from natural trauma.
The victim and Carter have known each other for several years. The victim even added that Carter is a YouTube rapper.
Carter is now behind bars charged with home invasion, second-degree battery and first-degree feticide. Her bond is set at $300,000.
