    You would think the leading cause of death for pregnant women is complications with their pregnancy... but that is not so.

    Leading cause of death for pregnant women is murder.

    90% of the time the murder is the husband/boyfriend/father of the baby... the other 10 % is made up of parents/other relatives/strangers or santanic dudes in brown vans.

    He was charged, tried and convicted of 2nd degree murder and is in prison.

    I seem to recall that in New York, First degree is reserved for the murder of a police officer or corrections official. Second can be what most states call first. I may be wrong about this though.. I'd have to research it.

    It only beats Heart Disease by 1%. (who'd have thought Heart Disease would be #2?)

    What is scary is that 20% of deaths in Pregnant women are due to murder, but only 6% of non-pregnant (child-bearing years) women, so obviously being pregnant ups your chances of getting murdered.
    Just the facts, Ma'am.

    From March 2014:

    http://www.timesunion.com/local/arti...al-5303152.php

    An appeals court upheld the second murder conviction of Warren Powell whose first conviction for strangulating his pregnant wife, Mary Ann Powell in 1994, was overturned.

    Powell's first 1997 murder conviction was overturned by the Appellate Division of state Supreme Court in 2004, ruling there was an error in how the jury was picked. In April 2009, Powell was convicted at his second trial and ordered to served 25 years to life in prison. Powell is also serving 15 to 30 years on unrelated drug charges. The sentences are running consecutively.
