(BALTIMORE SUN) — Cecil County's top prosecutor said Wednesday that he withdrew murder charges against two abortion doctors because he lacked definitive evidence that the fetuses at issue were terminated in Maryland.
"We know what the doctors did. We just don't know where they did it," State's Attorney Edward "Ellis" D.E. Rollins III said, adding that charges could be reinstated. Rollins withdrew all charges Tuesday against Nicola I. Riley and Steven C. Brigham, doctors charged under Maryland's fetal homicide law for the death of fetuses that the prosecutor's office considered viable outside the womb.
